A reflection from Martha Graham, shared by Palmer Maxwell
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action.
"And because there is only one you in all of time, this expression is unique.
"And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium…the world will not have it.
"It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions.
"It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open."
