Vision: Repair, Repentance, Renewal

This month, we’ll be focusing our ethical thoughts on vision. Repair, repentance, and renewal are part of the practice of intentional imagination and commitment to an envisioned future. This week opens our new program season for our Ethical Community, and this platform is an excellent time to bring a friend who might be interested in who and what we are.

Any vision for the future also needs to include a vision for how we will express our repentance for the errors we’ve made in the past, for the hurt we’ve caused, for the damage we’ve done. And then for how we will repair the hurt and damage, and move on to renewal. We can apply that principle in our personal relationships, and we can apply it to the larger picture. If we share a vision of every person’s human worth being honored, then seeing what that has not happened and repairing is part of getting to that future we envision.

Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, looks at some practical ways we can embody repair, repentance, and renewal in our ethical practice of vision.
