Parallel Processes

Published: Feb. 19, 2021


Dear Editor:

The piece from Marcelle Martin’s book that you shared on February 13 appeals to me. [Click here to read the excerpt.]

For many years, I taught classes in planning and social change. One time, two students, working on a class project, developed their own unique planning process. Their process seemed radically appropriate to me, and it still does.

Marcelle’s process of “Concern, Leading, Call.” Seems to the parallel my students’ process.

It’s wonderful to know that, deep down, sincere seekers often find similar ways of moving forward.

Pass on my note, please.
