What I can contribute is this

“What I can contribute is this” he said thoughtfully. We all know what he means. It is a large gift to our movement both to receive and give. It is more than money—it is time and contacts and commitment. Yet all of us have it outside in. In eternity we ask “How much can we give?” “To whom can I abandon myself?” There we know we live on what we give away—it is the very bread we eat. That little “What-can” in his offer focused on what he could afford, not on who might be, giving. It focused him on what he kept, not on what he could accomplish. Let us all be present, present all. Eternals count not cost but giving.
