“The real question is not about how to gain power, but how to lose power” says Jean Vanier in this 3.5 minute clip. Then take note too what he says about meetings…
A couple of thousand years ago, a young Jewish woman was going about her normal morning routines, perhaps with a mixture of house and garden work, chatting with parents and neighbours, aware of the local drought, the sickness of a neighbour and annoyed by the neighbourhood’s lack of sleep caused by the Romans’ noisy party the night before, when God broke into her routine and entered her life in a new and powerful way.

Thank you father John. Such a lovely message that we can take to heart, no matter what we do in life or where we ar3 on “ the ladder”.
