The new year beckons. Are we open to change? Will our actions and words change us, or others?

On our cover, Evelyn Brush experiences Radical Hospitality and says she is forever changed. Seattle Affiliates learn that racism cripples all of us, but that the words and actions of the transformational values of abundance, transparency and collaboration could change unjust systems.

Pope Francis’ new peace prayer urges communication with new words and actions as the way to peace. Our executive coordinator, Bob Short offers the possibility of a deeper knowing with wordless contemplation, as does a new virtual chapter.

In transformational action, ten Affiliates came together in Texas, prayed, reflected, and then transformed a house damaged by hurricane Harvey.

El Papa Francisco en varias ocasiones y con mucho entusiasmo nos ha invitado a unirnos en una “Revolución de la Ternura”. Pero, ¿En qué consiste esta Revolución de la Ternura? En este artículo se presentan algunos recursos que pueden permitirnos acercarnos a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco desde sus propias palabras. Los compartimos con la intención que pueda ser una fuente para reflexionar y responder, de forma individual y en comunidad, a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco.
