Witnessing Worship Online Photo Project
Through the lens of witnessing worship, can we learn a little about how to coexist cordially and respectfully even when common ground is hard to come by?
What is your response to the national, political, racial, gender, religious, etc. tensions all around us?
If you are like us at Convergence, regardless of your political or religious viewpoint, the need to respond (and as a leader, help others in their response) is weighing on you. We’ve been wondering how we can contribute to constructive public conversation and we are asking the question: how can we find the capacity and skill, generosity and grace to live well together?
Pádraig Ó Tuama of Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland points out that “Agreement has rarely been the mandate for being in relationship.” Perhaps, then a starting point is simply to acknowledge and observe the differences between us, to cultivate a “generosity of listening.”
Are you having this conversation as well?
Our Witnessing Worship Online Photo Project is a way to continue Nina’s exploration by entering a posture of listening and observation through our own lenses. By uploading your photos to the project page you are helping others observe and understand different current worship practices. Hopefully, this can foster a curiosity about one another and lead to better questions and conversation.
Participate in our online Witnessing Worship Photo Project by uploading current photos of your experience of worship to the photo project page HERE. Be sure to like and follow us and share with your friends!
