Really craving what this post describes right now… I’m so grateful for the reminders from the Nap Ministry as well as prayers from @BlackLiturgies on Instagram. The poem below brings such comfort – a space for rest.
“[Jesus] is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” – Colossians 1:17
What an amazing virtual rest experience that took place today. Close to 60 resters gathered via Zoom for storytelling, daydreaming, rest and discussion. I am so honored to have the opportunity to hold space for daydreaming, rest, and silence. To imagine a New World that centers liberation, we must practice rest as our foundation to invent, restore, imagine, and build.
I have included the text we engaged with today:
Article: Love as the Practice of Freedom by: bell hooks
Womanist Theological Ethics: A Reader, Edited by Katie Geneva Cannon, Emilie M. Townes, and Angela D. Sims.
Renaissance by: Ruth Forman (the specific poem from the book is titled, “On This Day.”)
Here is the poem in full:
On This Day
this is a day without chairs
a day where all the rooms melt together
and there are only corners/corners and humming
wishes and slight breeze
brushing you like…
