Before you lead me…… “Where are you going?”

Blizzard!

I heard the story of the woman driving through a snowstorm just outside of Burlington, Vermont. She was completely lost and struggling under the hazardous weather conditions. She was relieved when she happened upon a snowplow. Since she was lost she decided to follow the truck and kept as close to the machine as she could while it removed snow from the road. At times the blowing snow almost cut off her view, but she kept following it.

After some time, the snowplow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car. “Lady, where are you going?” he asked. “I’m on my way to Burlington, Vermont.” she replied. The truck driver replied, “Well, you’ll never get there following me! I’m plowing a parking lot!”

Before we let others lead us, it would be helpful to know their direction.

A few years ago I led a sacred pilgrimage to Peru with thirty-three people. It was an amazing and insightful journey for each of us. When we were on the bus and returning to the airport, I noticed the sadness in one of the women’s eyes, and I asked her, “What is so heavy on…
