I was creating faith treasure maps with the youth the other evening. Some messy fun with paper, tea, coffee, flame and ponderings. What are the openings along the path? What are the stuck or treacherous places?
Who are the people, places, stories, and songs that lead you deeper towards God?
“So true prayer demands that we be more passive than active; it requires more silence than words, more adoration than study, more concentration than rushing about, more faith than reason. We must understand thoroughly that true prayer is a gift from heaven to earth…” ~ Carlo Carretto
“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
“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
