More thoughts on reaching out

Designing a new leaflet for the presentation of the Secular Carmelites provokes so many questions. What really touches people's hearts and draws them to go deeper with us? How can we appeal to them through paper and words and pictures? What are the most important things to focus on? And then that takes me back to the basic questions we need to ask ourselves occasionally - Why am I myself in Carmel? What brought me in? And then at times I find myself going further and asking myself 'Am I true to Carmel myself?' 'Am I really living it?'

So a simple basic task like producing a leaflet can give rise to so many thoughts that can be fruitful in the long run.
