Wendell Berry's "The Real Work"


Here is a poem that I used as the opener / tone-setter for a talk I delivered at church a few weeks ago. Today another cyberspace dweller who was in the pews that Sunday asked about it so I thought I'd post it here for all to enjoy. I'd say it was the highlight of the message.

"The Real Work" - Wendell Berry

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
