A couple of weeks ago I was doing a workshop at a Women’s Conference. I listened to the keynote speaker, Hallie Lord, share her journey in the development of her faith. She is an author and a speaker who hosts a podcast.
Hallie was sharing a story about the interview she did with a nun for her podcast. The nun serves in a program in New York City for women who are in crisis and are pregnant. They have a place they can stay and get on their feet while they have the baby. As Hallie was interviewing the nun she asked her what do they do. The nun replied, ‘we pour love into the situation.’
As Hallie described her conversation she asked how they ‘poured love into the situation’? The nun responded that when the women arrive, regardless of the situation or the time of day, they don’t try to fix anything, they don’t try to make a big plan, and they don’t escort them to their rooms. What they do to ‘pour love into the situation’ is they make eggs, sit, listen and get to know each other. My guess is they probably sit and are still too.
What if we all just decided to ‘pour love into the situation’ and make some eggs for each other?
Love and eggs.
More getting to know one another.
Let’s slow down and make some eggs.
Pouring love, Erin
