That’s Not What Ships Are Made For

A wall poster pictures a ship on the ocean and it is right in the midst of a turbulent storm.

The inscription reads:

"A ship in a harbour is safe, but that's not what ships are built for!"

Launching out in life with all that we are and immersing ourselves in the service of others is a risky, dangerous and costly business.

When we launch out in the spirit of adventure and into the great unknown, that is when we are doing we have been made for.
