Gather some bread and juice to celebrate Communion, and a candle for our time of Reflection
Week 6: From Beauty to Compassion and Justice. Our series ends with a reaffirmation of our call to contemplative action in the world. The awareness of one another’s beauty is the “seedling for the birth of compassion and justice. The celebration of this beauty of beings, their communities and ecosystems, cannot exist without mourning assaults on them.”
A contemplative life can empty us and ready us to become instruments of the Good. We will affirm our plans to continue practicing “a way of beauty” that makes life “rich, courageous, generous, and joyful.”
Scripture: Isaiah 52: 7-10 (Inclusive Bible)
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of one who brings good news— who announces peace, and brings news of happy things, and proclaims deliverance, saying to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
