Occasional Papers -- Summer 2017

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers will take the theme, “Put Out into the Deep,” (Luke 5:4). Through a variety of approaches, we will explore the call that comes to us through the complexities of these times – globally, nationally, and within religious life realities. Fragile global economies, acts of terrorism, enormous growths in science, rapidly evolving technologies, as well as seismic changes in our religious communities create conditions that urge us toward deep thought and reflection in ways perhaps not required by earlier times.

Intimate Nearness of God (Daily Reflection Book)

$6.00

LCWR presents a new book, The Intimate Nearness of God: A Reflective Journal Exploring Contemplation and Transformation. The phrase, “intimate nearness of God,” comes from the keynote address by Pat Farrell, OSF at the 2016 LCWR assembly where she spoke of the contemplative impulse that has been stirring in and among women religious for some time. She noted that this contemplative focus is positioning religious to respond to a future impossible to anticipate. She posited that “we are being led in this direction for the sake of the church and the world.”

2016-2017: Embracing the Mystery: Living Transformation

Like budgets and calendars, annual reports communicate something about who we are and what we value. They’re intended to render accountability. They tell the story of where our time, our energy, and our money went. They recall our aspirations and reflect our reality. They are a snapshot of a segment of an organization’s life, and read from year to year they unfold a unique narrative of mission, vision, values, and activity.

Occasional Papers -- Winter 2017

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers on “Living into Love” focuses on the call to explore the mystery of Love and increase our own capacity for inclusive love that compels us toward transformative action for the life of the world. Drawing on ideas and insights raised during the 2016 LCWR assembly, these articles probe concepts on the transformation needed in the world today and the potential that a contemplative stance in life provides for unleashing the energy of inclusive love.
