Let us begin anew ...
We move on within this wonderful reflection on community and the living of it (something we all long for as humans).
I invite you to pause before you read this chapter and pray the following phrase from Psalm 111 slowly aloud three times. Bow to each of us in this conversation (as we will be bowing to you). Great are God's marvelous works, to be pondered by all who love them. (Psalm 111)
Finally, then, sit, read and reflect with this chapter which introduces us to the needs of each and all within a Benedictine community.
Consider with me the following questions. What is your first reaction to this chapter? What words, images and ideas were meaningful to you? Did it raise any questions? Did anything surprise you? Excite you? Concern you? Move you? Explain.
On the way with you -- Mary Ellen
