We See What We Say

Because we live in a world marked by nationalism, racism, and horrific violence, we need voices that can help us lament, voices that can call us to prayer, and voices that can point us to faithful action and engagement with those around us. This week, we’re sharing a piece written by EP member and longtime board chair Debra Dean Murphy.
It is our prayer that Debra’s short but powerful piece, “We See What We Say,” will help guide you to faithful words and actions in the midst of a week of grief and anger.

Fear and Hospitality

EP endorser Kelly Johnson recently published some reflections on “Overcoming the Fear of Beggars” over at Catholic Moral Theology. As we pray and grieve and wrestle with how we might respond to the events of the past week, her words are especially timely:

Wendell Berry and the Given Life

“[Wendell Berry’s] work reminds us, then, that our faith must be embodied, that it must go to work in local, loving economies that strive to honor the immeasurable gift of life.”
