I am currently away at a retreat. While here, I have been reminded of the importance of community. This community is working together towards a goal of having an imagination emporium. A physical space where the community gathers to imagine ways to transform the world to a more just society.
I thought, “We have that!”
The Bardo Group imagines peace and justice every day. And we walk with each other even with our diverse geographies.
That is Sacred Space.
Today, I would like to invite us all to build something together. Words that imagine justice for the lost, the least and the lonely. I am sure there is an official name for what I am proposing, but I am going to call it “communal haiku.” I will start us out with a haiku and I invite each reader to respond in their own way. Each of us building on the gift of one another. Sacred Space in community, building a gift together that imagines a transformed world.
This is inspired by a reading from on Hebrew scripture, Isaiah 25:6-10. Reaching back and including another community!
