Look what I found . . .

This was quoted in the book I'm reading . . . ran across it today. It speaks profoundly to yesterday's post:

Once the realization is accepted
That even between the closest human beings
Infinite distances continue to exist
A wonderful living side by side can grow up
If they succeed in loving the distance between them
Which makes it possible for each to see the other
Whole and against a wide sky.

---Rainer Maria Rilke

(BTW, the book is How Your Church Family Works: Understanding Congregations as Emotional Systems by Peter Steinke)
