Reflective

“Humility is essentially about being rooted and grounded. Humility is also about truth and radical self-honesty in celebrating the unique gifts we have been given in service of others, while we recognize our limitations and woundedness.” ~ Christine Valters Paintner

What gift do you celebrate?

Journeying

Spend some time gazing at the image. What draws your eyes? What waters are you navigating? What journey does it invite you to take? What feelings or emotions does it evoke in you?

Observing

“Be still. Take time to really observe before you step. Vigilantly seek to see and uncover the universe of relationships that is in place before you step. Recognize that you are in relationship with the setting…” ~ John Paul Lederach, The Moral Imagination

How do you notice connections?

Curiosity

Osheta Moore refers to curiosity as the birthplace of connection. Whatever our role, it is an ongoing invitation to explore and stretch beyond our knowing, our safety, or our narrative.

What draws you to peek over the edge?

Hope

Hope begins small with mustard seeds or yeast, a little bread and a few fish. Hope flourishes as we take time for beauty, rest and celebration, and reshapes our vision.

How does hope change you?

Bouquet

“The arts present the most powerful form of nonviolent resistance. …Reminders of beauty can present justice in words, images, and songs that draw us in and captivate our attention until their truth can reach our hearts and transform our communities.” ~ Makoto Fujimura, Culture Care

How do you become a bouquet of flowers?
