We all have dreams. Dreams of the way we want our lives to be. Dreams for our children. Dreams for our world, our faith communities and our society.
Sometimes we get paralyzed by thinking that there is nothing that we can do to make real the dreams that we have.
In reality, all that we need to do is simply take a step to make our dreams reality and chances are, that one step will have power to begin to make dreams a reality. If we simply dream without taking concrete steps, nothing will happen.
Teresa of Avila, a mystic and reformer in the 16th century said this: “If a person should do no more than take one step, the step will contain in itself so much power that they will not have to fear losing it, nor will they fail to be very well paid.” (The Way of Perfection).
What step can we take today to give birth to a dream that we hold within?
