Participating in a Circle of Connection in May’s We Conspire Series

What or who reminds you that we are all connected? In this month’s We Conspire series, we reflect on moments of sacred connection with each other and the natural world. 

Today, we have many ways of understanding how the world’s societies and ecologies interact with each other. Yet, as we move towards a world that is built on more holistic and loving relationships, Fr. Richard offers us a core message to bring with us on the journey: “God is One. Each one of us is a reflecting mirror of that wholeness and so is everything else.” 

In May’s We Conspire, join us in exploring reflections and stories about experiencing moments of connection which are the foundation of a deep relationship with all creation.
