What should we call what we do?
Without the help of offerings and tithes.
Do you think they believe in what we teach?
If they keep on coming every Saturday
I think yes
And what about the ones that miss?
The gatherings with four, one or none
They too believe
And for those that miss
Perhaps the time is not right for them,
Or they think as much
Sometimes it feels quite hopeless
And sometimes it feels like eternal greatness
I think the challenge is in trying again
And again and again
Until we are All in
I believe that we all believe
In doing good
In collective goodness
Coming together to do better
I have a better one

Facilitation is a heavenly practice especially where your input elicits remarkable response, like a mind-blowing project at the end of a program. And on the bad days it may be gutting– harrowing to the core of your beliefs and ideals, like when the tiresome quest of getting others to give your insights a chance only to yield very few or none. In between these two are other dynamics that inspire or deflate your will.
Perhaps the idea of impacting change is not to get to everyone all at once but to keep on trying to get to anyone all the time.
