Sunday Inspiration: Spider Web

spider web

“Humanity is like an enormous spider web, so that if you touch it anywhere, you set the whole thing trembling‚Ķ As we move around this world and as we act with kindness, perhaps, or with indifference, or with hostility, toward the people we meet, we too are setting the great spider web a-tremble. The life that I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place and time my touch will be felt. Our lives are linked together. No one is an island.” -Frederick Buechner

    Beuchner’s comment reminds me of a book by Walter Brueggemann entitled “Journey to the Common Good” ….. a good thoughtful read.

    I’ve often heard and understood the “butterfly effect” but this spider web concept presents same thought in a different way. Thanks so much for sharing! Sunday Blessings to you and yours.
