Conversations of the Heart

The “Conversations of the Heart" group met at Sr. Sue Kidd's in Charlottetown to view and discuss the video, WHERE ARE YOU the presentation which was given to the Formation personnel by Nancy Schreck. What a challenging presentation! We were all particularly struck by her use of God's words in the garden: WHERE ARE YOU? Where am I? Where are we? We will, I am sure, ponder that, as we struggle, as she said, to walk the tight rope on the margins of this new/different world to which we are called to be God's presence.

This is the new leprosy and the infected have become that person on the road where people are afraid to come to his/her aide. What can I do? I find myself crying out to Jesus asking this exact question.
