A beautiful day at Quonnie over the Labor Day weekend became the setting for a conversation in response to the article by Sandra Schneiders that was a suggested “summer read.”  Eight of us from six different local communities entered easily and trustingly into a sharing of experiences of transition, challenge, and hope inherent in religious life in the present and in the years since Vatican II.  The sharing was personal and rich, the listening was open and deep, the attitude was compassionate and supportive.  Also, it served as a link between the summer reflection with Nancy Sylvester and the “Sabbath Sharing’s” that will unfold amongst us in the coming months.  Our take-home commitment was two-fold: (1) the need for continued reliance on the Holy Spirit, and (2) focus on being our most pure self.  Thus do we hope to meet, survive, and thrive in the ongoing challenge of renewal in contemporary religious life.
