Our Approach to Individual & Social Transformation
Discovering our contemplative being connects us more powerfully to God, ourselves, and each other. It also connects our own inner transformation to the outer transformation we hope to see in the world. Inner transformation will give us perspective on our patterns of fear, self-doubt, shame, and anger, into the steadfastness of inner peace, purpose, power, and self-love—out of our false selves into our true selves.
Through our engagement, we come to experience and understand the power of community as the source of peace, change, renewal, connection, and courage. By living together with our whole selves we can practice the change we want to see in the world.
We see that the task of prophetic ministry is to nurture, nourish, and evoke a consciousness and perception alternative to the consciousness and perception of the dominant culture around us and then to act with and from that new consciousness. Taking insight and using it to guide our voices and action of social change allows us to bring our transformed hearts and minds out into the world with empathy, compassion, and courage. This is the fount of prophetic leadership.
