POETIC FEEDBACK…

what kind of world do we see?

…a peaceful and sustainable society

based on social justice,

positive relationships

and respect for diversity…

what structures, orders, offices, what people

children, youth, women, men

aged, sick, imprisoned, entrepreneurs

violent, employed, survivors, marginalised

do you sea?

what would it mean

for other, sister, brother, me

to experience deep transformation?

to hell with our differences

let’s share doxologies

get a life and get on with it

con(dis)tracted with descriptions

tasked to manifest

difference embraced

division healed

reconciliation enabled

what do we imagine?

a peace of transformation not truce

equity for all

a holding space for relationships

coherent models

creative methodology

innovative praxis

today or tomorrow?

a renewed people

humble

human

historical

freedom

context

visioning

shadows of our future selves

now or not yet?

where is the orthodox way?

learn or die

eat what you kill

no surrender

whole-hearted abandon

(mis)trust fear future destroyed

deny and follow

i did it my way

where will our pathways lead us?

one

holy

catholic

apostolic

gathered world with or without end

faith

hope

love

remain

is the greatest love?
