The human vocation is to be true co-workers with God and stewards of creation. ~ Denis Edwards
We have created three of the five videos in our Integral Vision Series! (Scroll down for the videos)
#1 - Integral Vision: Introduction May WE be ONE!
One-ness is the Divine design for life that calls forth from everyone a commitment to nurture and generate unity through our lives and mission. The diverse, fragile, yet generative web of life is created and sustained through right relationship, mutuality and cooperation among many varied life forms. These insights compel us to think anew about our commitment “to be one,” with ourselves, each other and with the earth.
#2 - Cosmology: It’s all about the STORY!
We human beings are always striving to understand the origins of our lives, our relationship to others and the meaning that our stories hold in today’s world. One of the most universally compelling stories impacting our lives today is about the origins, evolution, and ongoing expansion of the universe.
#3 - Deep Incarnation: The Evolutionary Journey of Advent
When Christ became flesh, he did not simply become a human being. He became part of a connected whole, the network of life that continues to evolve on planet Earth. Advent, from this perspective, is a journey deeper into the meaning of Incarnation.
Stayed Turned for the remaining two videos coming toward the middle of March 2020!
Woven throughout the SSND constitution, You Are Sent, as well as Love Gives Everything, the Directional Statement of the 24th General Chapter, is an invitation to oneness. As noted in its August 5th email, the provincial council seeks to engage the province more intentionally in contemplative dialogue for initiation of a commitment to the Directional Statement. The process will incorporate the Congregation-wide theological reflection process, contemplative dialogue, visual and verbal input, discussion, dialogue, discernment. Four videos are being created that will include reflection resources. Each phase of reflection will build upon those preceding it.
