Have a sense of compassion for your own journey, for your own leaving and returning; a sense of, ‘yes, yes, I’m loved when I take a risk. I’m loved even when I make a mistake because somehow, it’s an expression of my desire to claim myself. I did it in a wrong way, but I didn’t have any other way to do it at that moment’….Our God awaits us with compassion and tenderness.
Henri J. M. Nouwen (The Netherlands/1932-1996)
