Within their capabilities

The purpose of real authority is therefore always to help people to become more independent and discover what lies within their capabilities: in other words, help them to become free.

Notker Wolf, Enrica Rosanna
The Art of Leadership

We watch and admire our children as they engage with the lovely, tough, task of parenthood. It is a hope-filled experience. They strike me as kind people, possessed of immense patience and perseverance, even when exhausted. They appear to have an innate sense that their chief task is to ‘help [their offspring] to become free’. And that is what Divine occupation is engaged with, it has always seemed to me: liberating creativity that sustains the gift of life as it’s meant to be.

Drop me a note - I'm always glad to hear from you
