What would be your choice?

It has been almost two years since my congregation's General Chapter in which Sisters gather to set the direction for the next five years and to elect leadership to enable us to move in that direction.

What comes from the Chapter are Enactments mostly directed to leadership to take on and help Sisters to accomplish.  But one Enactment was to the Sisters directly to gather among themselves using the practice of contemplative study in order to decide together what issue they want to work on.

With so many needs among the people where we serve as well as global issues and care of the earth, how do we choose?  It is the call to contemplative common study that will assist each group which calls for each Sister to both bring the issues they are passionate about and a deep listening heart to the others with whom she will decide on an issue and how to proceed.

This work include prayer, study, listening, leadership and willingness to let go and follow - all together!

If you were part of one of these groups, what would be your pressing issue that is on your heart? What commitment would you make to actively participate with those in your group to work towards making a difference?
