The Summons

Seek the flourishing of the community, for when it flourishes, so will you!  Jeremiah

Do you feel it? Are you haunted by an inescapable sense that you need to respond?  That you can no longer remain silent?  Most likely the feeling has been building for a while now, born of a growing sense of disquiet: over the social, ecological, and spiritual divides.

Many bemoan that we have lost our way.  Others try to pinpoint when: blaming a particular administration, the subprime crisis, the refugee crisis, wars that rip us asunder across the globe.   Still others are pulling back to look at five hundred year cycles.  For a number of years now, there have been conversations pressing toward the healing of our divisions; toward a triple bottom line of people, planet, and prosperity.  The argument in response: Idealistic, but not really possible.  Good in theory, not reality.  All the while, the Summons deepens.  For such a time as this, we have been called to join the dance of action and reflection.

Poets & Prophets is a community of practice that nurtures the poet and prophet within toward the transformation of our communities.   We seek not perfection, but wholeness.  Our call is to care for people and planet even while attending to bottom line profit: a triple bottom line.

Together we are poets and prophets for the flourishing of our communities!
