Good Courage

view from the porch.
Even as I write this, my body is still on Pacific coast time from having just yesterday returned from an amazing, inspiring, igniting, calming, sweet, spiritual, lovely, collaborative, hopeful, creative, silly, exhilarating, breathtaking, fresh-aired, week-long visit to the charming, little historic Holden Village near Lake Chelan, WA. And spending time with two very dear friends of mine, Chuck + Peg.

I am doing design work for the village, so this was a work trip to immerse myself into this magical place. And it was. Magical. Like a microcosm of what a kind, compassionate, respectful world can be. Should be.

And I am immensely inspired.

There is so much more to write about this journey from which I've just returned. But for the time being, while I adjust the time zones, I would like to share this prayer — which especially after their very big scare of the 2015 Wolverine Fire last year — is so meaningful.  

Everyone who leaves Holden leaves refreshed and renewed. And we send each other out into the world with what has come to be known as “The Holden Prayer.” 
O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us. Amen.


  1. So great to have been with you, Wendy. Godspeed.

  2. Thanks, Kathleen. You, too! What an amazing week.
