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.

Winter 2009: Tending the Stirrings of New Life

$5.00

The 2008 LCWR-CMSM assembly provided a rich feast for reflection on religious life leadership. The major speakers encouraged leaders to face the realities and challenges of religious life today, but to do so from a perspective of imagination and creativity, believing that this time is ripe for change and growth ... This issue of Occasional Papers tends to the stirring of new life in LCWR member congregations. We invite you to read the pages that follow and be attentive to the life stirring in you that may be inviting your attention.

Update (December 2009)

This issue coincides with the liturgical season of Advent — a time of waiting, a season rich in story and symbols, a holding of the tensions between what has been and that which is yet to come as we continue to birth new life. This Advent is particularly poignant for those of us holding membership in the LCWR, but Mary’s story is one in which we can both rest and gain strength for the future.

Update (November 2009)

Last year at this time, November 2008, we were immersed in headlines that surrounded us on a daily, if not moment by moment basis. It was the time of the US national election for President and the fall conventions were surprising in their results as well as their cultural shifts. The election of Barack Obama was a turn of the tide in our history as not just age but racial lines were crossed in the search for hope and peace with a “yes, we can” attitude of previous eras.

Choosing Simplicity in a Context of Deep Time - Part 1 (Oct. 2009, Vol. 18, No. 4)

From the perspective of deep time, we see our unity with everything that has come before us. We can see the significant patterns which have guided the natural world,  from its humble beginnings in single cells, through its increasing complexification into the beautiful community of ecosystems, by which Earth continues the elaboration of life expressions as a single living being. All the relationships by which these patterns of life have developed are remembered in the exquisite strands of DNA wrapped within the vessel of every living cell in the totality of Earth’s being.
