We seek the way
to life.

Shedding illusion
falsehood
distraction
lies
despair
hatred
confusion,

We search to embody experiences of
connection
hope
simplicity
compassion
profundity
security
light
hope
gentleness
silence
strength
communication
proportion
kindness.

What can we see from here,
feel here,
sense here,
imagine here,
hear in this space?
What can we know?

How can we be known here?


John 10:14-15 (NRSV)

[Jesus said] “I am the good shepherd.
I know my own and my own know me,
just as God knows me and I know God.”


Mini-pilgrimage

Some say that it takes time to know things that matter most.
Ask yourself, “What am I coming to know that really matters?”

Write down your answers as a way of committing yourself to knowing more.
