The gift I received at Redfern is Understanding.

Understanding is

Precious and common place

Instantaneous and slow

About Others and Myself

About liturgy and freedom

About hunger and about being satisfied

About being chosen and about being available

About friends who tell and lead and call to celebration and shared suffering About being attuned to children – dancing – walking – crying- talking – asking questions – offering sustenance to grown-ups

About searing voices – simply, deeply, starkly challenging About being eloquently silenced

About dying and living

About togetherness
