...quietly sitting with the need, opening to clarity, around the experience of a casted, bound right hand and arm today ... heard the words [Thou wilt bind the stubborn will] come to mind ... and recalled it's from a well loved poem/hymn by Mary Baker Eddy of Science and Health ...
... as well as a clear message for me, it seemed very appropriate for our collective Movement... 

SHEPHERD, SHOW ME HOW TO GO

Poem by Mary Baker Eddy

Shepherd, show me how to go
O’er the hillside steep,
How to gather, how to sow,
How to feed Thy sheep;
I will listen for Thy voice,
Lest my footsteps stray;
I will follow and rejoice
All the rugged way.

Thou wilt bind the stubborn will,
Wound the callous breast,
Make self-righteousness be still,
Break earth’s stupid rest.
Strangers on a barren shore,
Laboring long and lone,
We would enter by the door,
And Thou knowest Thine own.

So, when day grows dark and cold,
Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold,
Take them in Thine arms;
Feed the hungry, heal the heart,
Till the morning’s beam;
White as wool, ere they depart,
Shepherd, wash them clean.
