SLOW WISDOM

A FORGOTTEN VIRTUE

Slow wisdom – a forgotten virtue: The everyday relatedness towards others steeped in restorative grace and justice. Craig Roberts applies an ancient lens of “Slow Wisdom” to the institutional landscape that underpins Aotearoa New Zealand. The poet contemplates the engrained hardness of heart by leaders and their followers which pervades against slow wisdom.

…Out of wounded histories,
fractious neighbourhoods, 
trust restored in fiery places…

VOCATION AS RESISTANCE

God moving

through, in, before & beyond us

Our practical accomplishments are called to be sensitive to the presence of the Holy Spirit as inseparable as lungs are to our breath.

The poetic writings of Vocation As Resistance challenges how we live our vocation in day-to-day life. When we follow vocation’s call led by the Holy Spirit it leads us to move through the toughest challenges. We are called to follow the call of an untamed God and transcend our cluttered urban minds, comfortable cultural norms and tamed imaginations. This vocational struggle is the “Celtic challenge of Trasna”. 

Uplifting and provocative.
