Last week I joined 30 other venturous Chicago souls willing to brave the early Spring weather to journey up to a quaint retreat house situated on Green Lake in the woods of Southern Wisconsin. For Vespers the first night, one retreatant shared the story of the Japanese Bowl. I found it an amazingly simple and beautiful story that described my life perfectly. I share it with you today and hope you will find it as inspiring as I did. You will find the above link to the Japanese Bowl on the Blog Ambition In The City Blog.
