Spiritual Social Action

Social action from a spiritual perspective is an intentional action in support of bringing about change for the better in some aspect of life connected with human society in general. Its intention is to afford fair treatment and benefits to all.

True spiritual social action moves us out of the role of "doing charity work for unfortunate others". Instead, we recognize it as a mutually beneficial exchange that empowers rather then invites dependency. We honor all aspects of our world, knowing that all have something of value to give, and that all benefit in that exchange.

For the next several weeks we will be involved with a group that will be considering the relevance of social action in our lives and how we can become peacemakers while enhancing the experience of giving in our lives.

Stay tuned for more information about our wonderful journey...

  1. I was blessed with meeting you and thank you for the invitation to become a follower.
    You gifted me a hope to change my current status of the "unfortunate" to "peacemaker"
    That would be the real miracle to forget my current helplessness of the disabled dependent and to become able to share the light I enjoy.
    God bless you!
