Collective Visioning

How Groups Can Work Together For A Just And Sustainable Future

BY LINDA STOUT
Stout lays out the extensive and innovative prework that must be done to build trust and openness before any kind of meeting is held - a distinctive feature of collective visioning. She describes creative approaches for encouraging people to share their histories and most deeply held personal values, and she explains how understanding why each person is drawn to the work is vital in designing action strategies that build on people's particular strengths. She illustrates her points with inspiring stories of what collective vision can accomplish, drawn from her decades of committed activism.

Spiritual Discernment

The Context And Goal Of Clearness Committees - Php 305

BY PATRICIA LORING
Patricia Loring articulates the use of clearness committees as instruments of discernment in the tradition of Quaker spirituality and practice. "To assist one another in the on-going discernment, we function in ways traditionally associated with the deepest work of spiritual communities. We can cultivate an environment among us which will foster one another's spiritual growth by directing and redirecting intention and attention to God; by discouraging what draws us away; by loving support for each other in the vicissitudes of our utterly human lives; by respecting and cherishing the uniqueness of each life." - The author
