Our Words for the Week come from Minnie Louise Haskins, a British poet and academic in the field of sociology, best known for being quoted by King George VI in his Royal Christmas Message of 1939. This excerpt is from her most notable work, The Gate of the Year.
“And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’ And he replied, ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.'”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most. — Jack Kornfield
