WHAT WOULD IT MEAN?

What would it mean to you if
In a moment of startling clarity
Bright as the Morning Star
It dawned upon you that
It was you that was born that night
In Bethlehem* afar?
What would it mean to you if
By converse and counsel
Silence and prayer
It became true for you that
You were, that you are.
What would it mean for you?

SRM 11 December 2012

*Bethlehem – House of Bread, or, one might say, a House of God’s provision

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.
