Mission Statement

                The Mission of Night Owl Scribbler


I believe in the power of words. Words can hurt or heal, humiliate or comfort, but when put to their best purpose they can comfort and teach. However, in order to reap the full benefit of healing, comforting, and educating words, we first need to listen. I'd like to quote Bob Matthews, a friend of mine from my old parish, a retired high school teacher who taught Sunday school at our church. When his students' attention span began to wane and they began talking out of turn Bob asked, "Do you know why God gave you two ears but only one mouth?" The kids looked at each other, then at him, shrugging there shoulder, dumbfounded. I'll never forget Bob's answer, "Because he wants you to listen twice as much as you speak."
