We are passionate about creating a welcoming and caring environment for employees, patients, and families. To keep us true to our mission and core values of reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence as we work and serve others, we use reflections at the start of every meeting. Reflections can create a dialogue and a new reality by inviting us to notice what we may not have noticed before, which in turn can positively transform how we think and feel about ourselves, others, and the world.
Feel free to browse our Reflection Pool for inspiration for your next reflection – whether to be shared with a group or for you personally. We hope this is a resource you find useful and come back to frequently.
In addition, we invite you to inspire others with a submission of a short story, poem, sacred story, scripture, or famous quote that encourages others to reflect on their personal or collective experience—in our being and in our doing.
Peace Begins with a Smile
The fruit of silence is prayer; the fruit of prayer is faith; the fruit of faith is love; the fruit of love is service; the fruit of service is peace. Let us have love and compassion.
Peace begins with a smile. Smile five times a day at someone you don’t want to smile at; do it for peace. Let us radiate the peace of God so His light can extinguish all hatred.
If we have no peace, it’s because we have forgotten that we belong to each other, that every man, woman, and child is my brother or sister. If everyone could see the image of God in his neighbor, do you think we’d still be seeking peace?
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.
Keep taking the steps that will get you closer to a career you love.
There Comes a Day
There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.
You May Encounter Many Defeats
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
