Weavings: The Unraveling Toward Love

April 17, 2015
Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life
 
Articles 1000 to 2000 words, sermons and meditations 500 to 2000 words, stories (fiction or nonfiction) 750 to 2000 words, poems, prayers and liturgical pieces. Weavings is neither a popular devotional guide nor a technical scholarly journal. We are looking for material that has spiritual depth expressed in simple, even poetic, prose. We hope authors will show our readers the subject rather than simply describe or explain it. It is recommended that you order print
copies of the journal so as to become familiar with content style. 
 
 
Theme: “The Unraveling Toward Love” (Aug/Sept/Oct 2016 issue)
All Proposals Due – 05/08/15
 
[Jesus said,] “Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”
—John 12:24
 
In the quest to live compassionately, we encounter paradox at every turn. The grain of wheat must die before it can live again more fruitfully. We are closer to the Divine when most fully human. We hold in tension the both/and of the individual and the community, of orthodoxy and orthopraxy, of strength and vulnerability, of personal religious beliefs and those of others in the world. In the midst of all the tension and dissonance, how are we to live compassionately in our daily life? What are the acts of compassion, both large and small, that move us as individuals and as a people to a more loving way of life?
