Entering The Transforming Future, will include sessions where speakers share their expertise and the fruits of their contemplation in a format inspired by TED. Here is a video of Karen Armstrong speaking on compassion and reviving the Golden Rule. Following her talk at TED, she received the TED Prize Wish for the World! As a result, the Charter for Compassion was born.
We cannot say with any certainty how the transforming future which we seek to enter will unfold. But as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said, “God has not called me to be successful; He has called me to be faithful.”
With much faith we prepare for this Convocation, asking the Holy Spirit to guide our time us in the ministry of justice, peace, and integrity of creation in the coming age of religious life. We are surfacing the topics of the talks. Our list of speakers and topics is underway, but we also want to know: what would you find inspiring?
