Margaret wrote back later in the day saying, “To think that there is the possibility and hope that this fierceness and fire of Prophet is able to come back and maybe come back better or holier . . . this gives me so much hope!”
That is the power of languaging something. I have not yet developed a strategy for her to redeem the years when the fire was put out, but just the legitimizing of the childhood competitiveness and fire which the other two organizations put out, has stirred some embers and is creating great hope.
Legitimizing something that is only a dream, and not rooted in essence is simple hype and does not take you far. But when the life of God in someone is recognized and validated — that packs a punch.
