some weekend inspiration from Rachel Held Evans

There are lots of interesting, heart warming and challenging things to read here:

But my favourite is this, which although I don’t have children, reminded me very much of being a youth worker:

Michael Gerson at The Washington Post with “Saying Goodbye to My Child, the Youngster” 

“Parenthood offers many lessons in patience and sacrifice. But ultimately, it is a lesson in humility. The very best thing about your life is a short stage in someone else’s story. And it is enough.”
