With all the tumult going on in the U.S. and world right now, what we we can’t lose sight of is the reality that what we all want, what truly unites us, is a world in which we all can thrive.
This is a world in which we can respect our differences and understand our common bonds. This is also a world in which we all work together, to help everyone do well.
In that regard, I will be going to the Sister Giant conference that takes place in a few days, from Thursday, Feb. 2 – Sat., Feb. 4 in Washington, D.C. This is a conference that integrates politics, activism and spirituality, with its aim to create a “politics of love.”
Sister Giant is being hosted by author Marianne Williamson and Derrick Harkins, Sr., vice President of the Union Theological Seminary.
Sister Giant is dedicated to forging a deeper conversation about what is happening in America today – and what we can do to change it. The Conference will bring together an illuminating mix of thinkers, gathering to consider the state of our country on both spiritual and political levels. The gathering will incubate ideas and contribute to plans by which each of us, particularly now, can help move America in a more enlightened direction.
From the role of citizen to the role of the media, from how we can get the money out of politics to how to stem voter suppression, from understanding misogyny to transforming racism, from protecting the environment to protecting each other, Sister Giant will present ideas and facilitate actions that lead us as a nation from a consciousness of fear to a consciousness of love.
In these contentious and polarized times, it is easy to lose sight of what we all value and want. When we take away our own agendas of self-interest and instead think of the big picture, of what would benefit everyone – our society and world – that is when we can start to see more clearly what we all need to grow, evolve and thrive, individually and collectively.
Let’s all work together as citizens of the nation and world to channel the better angels of our nation. Let us move forward and create the world our hearts know is possible.
Here’s to the creation of a world that thrives.
Maybe I’ll see you there.
