Blessed are the quiet ones

Blessed are the quiet ones, who hold their thoughts in gentle hands and listen all the more carefully. Blessed are the kind ones, who reach out to others without hesitation and by so doing heal the world. Blessed are the funny ones, whose humor keeps us hopeful no matter what we face. Blessed are the thoughtful ones, who think deeply to learn more and so become our teachers. Blessed are those who share for they are the parents of community. Blessed are those who risk for they find the answers we seek. Blessed are those who are patient for they show us how God relates to us all.

~The Rt. Reverend Steven Charleston
