Listen to Young Adults


“The more we increase the active participation and partnership with young people, the better we serve them. … And the more comprehensively we work with them as service partners, the more we increase our public value to the entire community.”
– Carmen Martinez
Dear Friends,
I have not only been the co-chair with Steve and working diligently on all aspects of the NAIN conference, I have also been working with an Inter-generational Planning Team for a session at the conference. It has and still is a pleasure to work with my team of
20+, 30+, 40+ and 50+ age members. It was and still is  a collaboration and cooperation of love, respect and valuing of each other’s ideas and skills.  We are visioning others will take the these basics and apply them to their own interfaith and intergenerational groups.
Are you a member of a group, organization or team?
What is your age range?
Would you like young adults ages 18-35 to take an active part of the leadership and direction of your group?
How will you engage this age group to work alongside you?
The Poway Interfaith Team has been challenged by this as well. After this conference I hope to personally find the best ways to incorporate young adults in our planning and visioning process.  One thing YA do not like to hear, is that they are our future.  Their statement is, “Why not now?  We have great ideas and ways to implement them now.”
Come to the NAIN conference, especially on Monday, where you will hear the amazing things young adults are doing and and dialogue with young adults at the Inter-generational Dialogue session Monday afternoon. Your eyes will be opened and learn new ways all generations can work together for a common good and goal.
On a more personal note, I have been working with my daughter, age 30+ on the redesigning of our guest room.  She has a degree in Ecological Interior Design so I know she has the skills and knowledge to redecorate a room. She has been doing this for years commercially, for grade schools, high schools and colleges.
However my own ego almost got in the way.  I showed her my paint chips for the room with ideas for decorating. And she said no, too harsh a color, not enough this or that. etc. I finally let it go and LISTENED to her.  Well, the colors she picked were PERFECT for the room.  She saw, what I couldn’t see.
The point is, do we really LISTEN to our youth and young adults. Do we really appreciate their intelligence and expertise regardless of age?  What are you doing to encourage young adults to use their knowledge and skills?   Food for thought.

The Parliament of the World’s Religions Condemns President Trump’s Plans to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement

The Parliament of the World’s Religions Condemns President Trump’s Plans to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement
CHICAGO (June 1, 2017) — The 21st century presents no greater moral challenge than addressing the threat of human-caused climate change.
President Donald Trump has utterly failed that test.
The Parliament of the World’s Religions condemns in the strongest possible terms the President’s decision to renege on the commitment of the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement, a pact signed by 195 nations and formally ratified by 147 nations.
The decision is wrong from every relevant perspective:
Scientifically, it is unsound and indefensible.
Economically, it undermines the ability of the United States to build a competitive economy for the future, sacrificing US jobs at almost every level of production and service, sacrificing American competitiveness in every market.
Medically, it condemns hundreds of thousands to unnecessary sickness and premature death.
Politically, it undermines the United States’ credibility and trustworthiness with its strongest allies as well as its fiercest competitors, and thus strikes a self-inflicted blow against national security.
Our condemnation of this decision is based on our conviction that the decision is wrong, but not just in the sense that it is incorrect. This decision is wrong in the sense that it is evil—it will result in devastation to life on Earth for generations to come. Its global consequences and impact on every living being on the planet makes it fundamentally immoral.
Every individual and every nation, every institution and every corporate entity, every religious and spiritual community faces this momentous ethical challenge of our age. Those with the greatest opportunity and power to affect the course of the 21st century have the greatest responsibility to act with unflinching moral integrity.
No individual faces more responsibility than the President of the United States.
His failure, however, only increases the responsibility of others. If this President fails, it falls then to the people and their elected representatives to reject, reverse, and overcome it.
The Parliament is committed to that reversal and to overcoming its consequences as well as the ignorance on which it is based. We call on others who cherish all that is sacred in our world to join in that commitment, and to endorse that commitment with their own words and their own actions.

Walking the Labyrinth is Walking to the Center of Who You Are.

Everyone is welcome to walk our Labyrinth on their own time and pace.
It is a walking meditation. As we walk, we are open and receptive to Divine Ideas,
our Divine Purpose and Divine Transformation.

A labyrinth is a sacred geometrical symbol with a single path leading to a center point.
It is not a maze because there is only one path.  The walls keep you on the path.
The goal is in the center of the labyrinth.  When you reach it, you have gone half the distance – you now need to turn around and walk back out.
Its unique pattern is designed to shift awareness from left brain to right brain as you walk, inducing altered states of consciousness.
It allows those who enter to experience other ways of “seeing.”  The center point is the place of power.  A labyrinth is a single path or uni-cursal tool for personal,
psychological and spiritual transformation.  Labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity.
In a most basic sense, the labyrinth represents the spiritual journey; that of venturing to the center of your innermost being and then returning to the world with a broader sense of who you are.
It is a metaphor for life’s journey.  Inherent within the design of the labyrinth is its archetypical power, dating back some 3,000 to 4,000 years.
