Outside my window a tree full of berries is blowing in the wind. All summer, bees were feeding from the nectar of the flowers, and now, thanks to their efforts, birds are delighting in the rich fruit.

I am at my desk, working – collating information for our General Chapter and planning events for Young Adults. I find myself inspired by the summer bees, who, in gathering what they needed, provided a fruitful space for others. May each of us find meaning and purpose in what we do, and in doing it may we benefit others.
