What we do

In working with (young) people,
do not try to call them back to where they were,
and do not try to call them to where you are,
as beautiful as that place may seem to you.
You must have the courage to go with them
to a place that neither you nor they have ever been to before.

From Christianity Rediscovered by Vincent Donovan
Quoted in Off the Beaten Track by Richard Passmore
My brackets and emphasis

Isn't this it?
