It has been a number of years since I read Parker J. Palmer’s Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation. A fantastic guide for delving into vocation (and thus facing yourself down) that I highly recommend.

I was happy to discover that Mr.Palmer was on Bill Moyer’s Journal this evening. He speaks with great wisdom about where we are as a country, where we are as a people, what we do when darkness falls – and how we can crawl out of this together.

Parker agrees with Moyers’ assertion that this is a heartbreaking moment in American history: “Part of the heartbreak is around having to give up illusions that we’ve carried for far too long. And it’s good that that’s happening, too…We have to learn a new set of habits of the heart. And I think that can happen.”

I highly recommend reading through the transcript (here in the second half, after the interview with Robert Kaiser). He is ruthlessly straightforward and hopeful. Please give it a read. Better yet, listen to it in podcast form at iTunes.
