vanier-from-jean-vanier.orgVanier writes, ‘We can try new ways to find peace of heart and a little tranquility by doing simple, practical things: cooking, cleaning the house, visiting a friend, writing a letter, taking a walk, listening to gentle music, visiting a church, praying in silence or playing with children. In the midst of all our weakness and pain, we can experience moments of peace and joy.’

lfte‘The most significant change at the beginning of this century [the 21st] has been the creation of platforms for cross-sector cooperation that enable change-makers to gather, become aware of, and understand the evolution of the whole system, and consequently to act from impulses that originate from that shared impulse.’ (Leading From The Emerging Future, p.55)

Kinder-Morgan is trying to build a pipeline in BC, but protesters have set up a blockade. ‘More than 100 people have been arrested at the blockade, including Council of Canadians Organizing Assistant Brigette DePape, … [who] said, “It will take all of us to stop this pipeline.

Richard Rohr-from-cacRichard Rohr reminds us, ‘Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself” not “as much as you love yourself.” We are to love our neighbor in the same way we love ourselves.’ That’s a toughie. But he has more: ‘In last week’s Daily Meditations, I shared the following; I want to say it again because it’s so important: “Love is where we came from. And love is where we are going. When we live in love, we will not be afraid to die. We have built a bridge between worlds.” ‘

giving-tuesday-logoAlso from the Council of Canadians: ‘Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. After the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday – which this year falls on December 2 – is a time to celebrate and encourage activities that support charities and non profits. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering time, helping a neighbour or getting involved, Giving Tuesday is for people who want to give something back.’ I volunteer my time and internet skills.
