Day Twenty-Eight – The Lord Has Yet More Light and Truth

: Imagine yourself and the Community, if you can, some twenty years into the future. What are some of the things that you can see we must say more about?

Br. James Koester: I think there are two places, particularly.  Living here at Emery House, I am aware that the care of the earth and creation is there in the Rule in a number of different places, but it’s not a major thrust or even a real subtext, by any means. We need a whole chapter on that, I think. I would say, too, that our political voice is oddly quiet, almost missing, and part of what it means to stand in the prophetic tradition is being overtly political, whatever that means.
