An Uncreated Spark

Note from TBF:

Eknath Easwaran (1910–1999) was an Indian born spiritual teacher and author, as well as a translator and interpreter of early Hindu texts such as the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.   This modern Indian scholar, translator, and spiritual teacher highlighting the words of a late-medieval Catholic priest and a mid-Renaissance married woman would seem to be a spirit-led confluence of ideas.

Being Christian . by Howard Thurman

In this daily meditation from Center for Action & Contemplation posted on July 26th, Fr. Richard Rohr asked the reader  to reflect on their own sense of identity—both as an individual and as part of a collective—as they read Howard Thurman’s thoughts on race and relationships.  As we approach the event, Stand Up For Humanity, scheduled for Saturday, August 10th in Washington DC, I ask us all to reflect on what is means to bring our sense of identity to being "human" and "Christian."

Our Response

***I'm on vacation this week.  Let these words from Fr. Richard Rohr inspire you to find God in yourself and in all things around you.***

"If you want to find God, then honor God within you, and you will always see God beyond you. For it is only God in you who knows where and how to look for God."

Sister Simone Campbell, SSS—known as “the nun on the bus”—is someone I consider a modern prophet. She is the Executive Director of NETWORK, an organization that lobbies for socially just federal policies. On this “Independence Day” (in the United States), reflect on Sr. Simone’s invitation to co-create our collective freedom.
