Worship Series: Lift Up…. Our Work
Worship Series: Lift Up. . .Our Vision and Mission
August 13 – Pivot in vision: from problem fixing to possibility creating The history of exclusion, a scarcity mindset, and zero-sum thinking resulting from inequality come with a psychic cost. We have been socialized to focus on fixing problems and not on creating entirely new possibilities.
Pivot in our connection: from transactional to transformative relationships Most of us have been trained to lead and work with others in highly technical ways. Transactional relationships are efficient for work and productivity but insufficient for healing. Transformative relationships in our professional and personal lives cultivate deeper human connection through vulnerability, empathy, and listening.
Pivot in our awareness: from lens to mirror Instead of viewing the world through a thick lens—that is, as analysts of social problems—we must view it as a mirror of ourselves. This involves the practice of self-reflection and exploration of who we are as individuals and how we contribute to the world we wish to create.
