How are we being called to live differently?
30 November 2016 | General Interest
As part of their response to the Year of Mercy, about 20 groups throughout New Zealand and the Pacific have spent weeks and months engaged in a worldwide reflection process, sponsored by the Mercy International Association.
The carefully constructed process has invited groups to work through four distinct but connected steps, beginning with a sharing of issues of concern to identify a single focus, drawing inspiration from our wisdom traditions and concluding with a clear plan of action. Critical questions for groups to address include ‘what are we being called to do differently, or how are we being called to live differently, as a result of our analysis?’, ‘what can we do locally, and when will we evaluate such action?’, ‘how will we know when we have achieved this?’.
