A meditation on wonder: as a foundation for the work of community, and compassion, and justice; the wonder of this life; the wonder of you.
With immense gratitude to the Spartanburg Hispanic Alliance and Araceli Hernandez-Laroche for their vital work, and their invitation to join in it.
Offered at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, SC on January 7, 2018.
The meditation may be heard here:
From the meditation:
“What is it that awakens you to your life,
to the knowledge,
the deep knowledge
of who you are,
the more that you are,
on the edge of the possibilities of the world?…
Feel the wonder of who you are,
feel it in yourself,
and say it to one another,
for your own sakes,
because it is true,
and as a foundation on which to build,
a place to begin the work
of community, and compassion, and justice
so vital to our purpose here…
That is where we begin:
the wonder of you.”
