I recently returned from participating in the University of Dayton’s Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) Diocesan Convocation. During the trip I read two books something I’m not always able to accomplished. Traveling to Dayton Ohio required stops in Denver and Chicago providing ample time for reading. I completed my annual re-read of Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. This book is as insightful today as it was when first copyrighted in 1963. Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors and I find his satire more biting every time I read Cat’s Cradle.
The other book I read was Our Iceberg Is Melting by John Kotter recommended by a friend at the meeting. Its a fable about living through change. I bought it when I arrived at the Dayton airport on my way home and finished it before I left Chicago….easy read. Like many fables it has a lot to say about change and the way we deal with change. I’m left asking, which of our icebergs is melting?
Live by the foma that make you brave and kind and healthy and happy.
