Over the past 8 days, I have taught thirty-one people how to make glass mosaics and what it means to be part of a spiritual practice “Making Wholeness from the Broken Bits.” As each of us culled through the tiny, shiny bits of glass, we drew deeply into ourselves to create a bit of magic on pieces of simple wood, finished by a coat of cement to fill in the cracks. We exist in a time of uncertainty and big questions, generally known as “The Kingdom of God Here on Earth.” The beauty that was created in the mosaics reflects the beauty of each of the makers. Art, music, dance, poetry, cooking, and prayer are the tools that will lead us through, to make us creators and people of action on a hurting planet that depends on us to care for each other and all of creation that surrounds us. I am deeply grateful to be able to share with you all the ways that I serve at CGS, and look forward to what might emerge as we move forward.
