Unite the light

How does trauma reverberate within you and through your community five years after the Charlottesville events of August 12?

How do you recognize all the creative ways your community has pulled together to take a stance against racism?

How do you recommit yourself to continue to work toward beloved community?

Attentiveness

“If you keep the Sabbath, you start to see creation not as somewhere to get away from your ordinary life, but a place to frame an attentiveness to your life.” ~ Eugene H. Peterson

How do you frame attentiveness?

Curious

Curiosity leads us towards the things that are just beyond us. Things we do not know or see yet but that have somehow drawn our attention or questions.

What are you curious about?

Rhine river

Watching the boats go up-and-down the Rhine, I notice the markers to keep the boats from running aground.

What markers keep you in the deep flow of life?

Silence

“Of the little words that come out of the silence, like prayers prayed back to the one who prays, make a poem that does not disturb the silence from which it came.” ~ Wendell Berry
