Steven Charleston, a Native American elder, author, and retired Episcopal bishop of Alaska writes,
“Humility is the first step in our own spiritual narrative.
Not once, but over and over, as our life shifts through age and place.
It is not feigned innocence or submission.
It is what my ancestors believed was the gyroscope of the holy,
the sense of inner balance that holds a tension between pride and resignation,
between limitation and possibility.”
Reflect on the tensions and balance Bishop Steven articulates.
