As I returned to my Vision it moves me closer to realizing that perhaps a place for me to land is with the concept of fractals (per Adrienne maree brown in Emergent Strategy). A fractal is a never-ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. “….that what we practice at the small scale sets the patterns for the whole system.”(pg. 53)
As a 78 year old woman, I do not have the energy or the stamina to engage in a process of transformation of this faith tradition. I love what Call to Action is framing (Education, Lobbying, Direct Action and Alternatives) and my heart is with them.
I can transform how I live it in the here and now. I can join with like-minded persons and we can co-create the space we want to claim for this phase of our life’s journey.
Friday, June 24, 2020 I will be meeting with a group of @ 7 women. We have been lamenting our presence in a faith tradition that shames us. I will seriously question what alternatives we see for ourselves now? I will share with them my Vision Statement of Week 3.
I will invite those who are interested in exploring alternatives to meet again. I will suggest that we begin to flesh out what we can take from the vision statement that we developed over a year ago. What of it can come to life in the here and now that is within our control? We will co-create our present as mature disciples and in the image of quantum entanglement.
