LDI constantly explores the intersection of contemplative practice and social action. Two weeks ago, that exploration took me on a trip with other contemplative activists, where I sat with an Episcopal monk who has been committed to contemplative prayer for decades.
Since the Formation Program launch at the end of January, our seven Formation teams have been hard at work discerning the needs of their communities and working to address injustice.

This is a motto that I embrace in my work with UniteBoston to build bridges across Christians. However, at LDI's Foundation of Leadership course in January, I realized that UniteBoston's leadership structure was not as strong as it could be. We have an awesome team of volunteers, but as the founding director of the organization, I tend to place the burden responsibility of tasks and execution on myself.
