For what are we giving thanks this year?

Posted November 26th, 2014 in Blog, Featured 2 Comments

I give thanks this day for all those who understand what it means to live on a planet that gave birth to life and allowed us to come into being. I give thanks for all those who work each day to nurture that reality, to protect it from harm, to defend their “places,” to work for social and eco-justice, who struggle against racism and all forms of discrimination because they (we) see that every part of life is precious, given, to be honored and respected.

…this “sustained attention” comes with a high price for the soul – looking at reality directly and seeing the moment clearly. More and more I believe this can only be done in community because otherwise it is too terrifying…

Everything is becoming unprecedented – and yet most of the culture still looks to precedent for comfort or direction…

So now what? That is the great adventure, that question. How we form community around it is then one of our great challenges.

Re-inventing the Center for New Creation can only be done in community – because that’s how “creation” works

Posted October 20th, 2014 in Blog, Featured, New Creation News Comments Off on Re-inventing the Center for New Creation can only be done in community – because that’s how “creation” works

Whether or not there is hope depends on what we do now…as we form community based in friendship, conviviality, humility, shared risk, play, and even joy, we will already be on our way to moving beyond what is causing all these collapses to creating the news ways of life that can one day emerge out of the old.
