“Turning the fear of transformation into the transformation of fear”

“Turning the fear of transformation into the transformation of fear”

At Church Council this week Lee O’Connell led us in a great little devotion called “The parable of the Trapeze.”

You can find the full text and its context at earthstewards.org. Someone has even made a groovy little youtube video of it..

The words from Danaan Parry resonated strongly for myself and others on Church Council as we consider how we are changing as church.

And those changes are not about us. The changes we experience are happening across our world, with us or without us. Transitions indeed.

Watch the clip. It has a great grab from the movie “Trapeze” with the lovely Tony Curtis and Gina Lollobrigida and intimidating Burt Lancaster. They knew how to make a movie!

Listen to the words. Think about where you are. Think about where we are.
