Contemplative spirituality

Please share with your network!

We all desire to make effective change in our communities and political systems. We do good better when our active lives are rooted in contemplative spirituality. Contemplative prayer dismantles our illusions of difference, prejudice, pride, and fear and allows for love to flow more freely though us to heal our world.

We need contemplative spirituality to see the rights of our displaced brothers and sisters realized. To transform our cities into generative, adaptive building sites for peace, rather than polarizing communities of difference and conflict. We belong to each other. Humanity is but one family. May we see this truth realized in our hearts and our communities as we hold difference with tenderness, grace, respect and dignity.
