MBTP 005: Taking off One’s Shoes

In this episode, I comment on a story told by Sister Joan Chittister about a man who removes his own shoes in the dead of winter and gives them to a homeless person wearing only open-toed sandals. I offer this story to encourage us, as teachers, to bring forth all that we are and to take responsibility, gently, when we feel we’ve fallen short. To be so transparent that you feel as though you’re removing your own shoes in the winter and to walk into the cold in your bare feet.
