Civility in Discourse: A Franciscan Approach (December 2011)

On January 10, 2011, a former Franciscan Action Network (FAN) colleague and I presented a workshop on Civility in Discourse to student leaders at Neumann University, a Franciscan institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. The training incorporated role-play exercises from the Pace e Bene organization and illustrative stories from St. Francis of Assisi’s life.

Update (December 2011)

Promoting the Common Good

During the August LCWR annual assembly in California, those present read the signs of the times and saw a country wounded by partisanship and disparities of wealth and power. They called for a return to civil discourse that “promotes the common good, reaches out to others, engages in constructive dialogue, and seeks together the way forward.” Committing themselves to do the same, they promised “to hold these concerns at the center of our prayer and to respond in love.”  

Since then, I have noticed others reading the same signs.  

Annual Report 2010-11: Behold, I Am Doing Something New

Praying with texts describing the days of the early church — texts often read during the Easter season – can lead us to wonder what it was like to live in this time of new birth. The courage, the generosity, and the living faith of the early disciples were extraordinary. That time can lead us to recall the conversations that generated so much excitement in the days following the Second Vatican Council. There was a heightened emphasis upon the study of both charisms and scripture. There was an eagerness to experiment and to deepen our fidelity to religious life.

The LCWR Presidency: An Unparalleled Life Experience

In a couple of weeks many of us will be traveling to California for the LCWR 2011 Assembly. We look forward to being together, to the refreshment and inspiration offered by our keynote speakers, and all the efforts to continue our movement into the future. For me, this will be my last assembly serving in the presidency. In my whole being is heartfelt gratitude for the grace and relationships that have been gifted me by all of you during the past three years.
