Update (July 2010)

We arrived at the shores of the ocean in Harvey Cedars, New Jersey where we held our most recent meeting of the LCWR executive committee. It was not an easy arrival; rather one that took us through a storm with fierce lightning. Traffic slowed. Drivers were more careful than usual. The evening was humid and warm with little movement of air. 

Update (June 2010)

So many people, events, meetings, and occasions press us for time and attention. Consequently, when we receive invitations to larger and international events, we tend to agonize over the time it will take, the cost, and the stress of travel. Is it worth it in terms of our ongoing formation as leaders of religious congregations

Reducing and Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint (May 2010, Vol. 19, No. 2)

The 2009 LCWR Assembly Resolution calls us to measure and reduce our carbon footprints. The Global Concerns Committee, which had proposed the resolution, agreed to calculate our personal footprints by going to one of the suggested web sites and discussing the results at our fall meeting...

Update (May 2010)

Update (March 2010)

Here is a story from the Franciscan tradition. In imitation of Christ, Francis never wished to abandon the dignity of the poor Christ at any time, not even on the feast of all feasts, Easter. He used to go begging on all the principal feasts, saying that, in the poor, the psalmist’s words are fulfilled: Humanity eats the bread of angels. [Psalm 78: 25]

Update (March 2010)

It is nearly Lent and the boards of both LCWR and CMSM are gathered in a retreat house in Tucson, Arizona to discuss issues of mutual importance. It is a desert immersion experience. One can’t help but be reminded that the desert was the place Jesus chose to spend significant time in preparation for his years of active ministry.

‘ILLth’: Uneconomic Growth (Feb. 2010, Vol. 19, No. 1)

Many have compared today’s economic crisis to the Great Depression. Indeed, with official unemployment surpassing 10 percent and debts forcing a growing number of families to leave their homes, it is easy to see similarities. Both financial crises were rooted in a prior period when the financial sector of our economy became too large and influential, putting the rest of the economy at great risk.

Update (Feb. 2010)

On the verge of entering  a new liturgical season, Lent, and Ash Wednesday, its initiating day of focus for the weeks to come, we cannot help but hear the call to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. These challenges bring us back to God at our center, our willingness to let go of those things that bind us in un-freedoms and our call to a communal focus of the needs of others. It’s that continuing call to a deeper conversation of heart, mind, and action.
