Congregational Gathering 2006
At our Congregational Gathering in 2006, we reflected on our life and mission as a Congregation and our call into the future. This reflection led us to a new consciousness of our interconnectedness and our interdependence.
Aware that 'we stand at a critical moment in Earth's history' we encourage each other to respond wholeheartedly in the spirit of Nano Nagle to the following commitments, as a way of living our Christian and Presentation calling in today's world.
We commit ourselves to a spirituality of being in communion that seeks God in the inter-connectedness of the whole of creation and empowers active love for self, others and all of nature.
We commit ourselves to
- Reflect critically on the use of power, including our own, in order to change unjust systems at local, national and international levels
- Move towards ways of living that enable social justice and sustainability.
We commit ourselves, wherever we are, to being in formative community with people made poor.
We commit ourselves as a Congregation to move towards new expressions of global solidarity in mission.
We commit ourselves to a dialogue across the Congregation on our understandings and practice of leadership using a process of theological reflection.
