We have been on a journey through the important document,
Being Artisans of Hope in our Blessed and Broken World.
We acknowledge with gratitude all our desires and efforts to collaborate with God's work of transformation in the world through our service with the heart of an educator....
As we continue the work of JPIC that the Spirit has begun in us, we find direction and inspiration in these four imperatives:
1. Role of power
2. Structural and systemic transformation
3. Relationships and care for our common home - "caring for this, our common home, is both a call and a witness to hope."
4 Compelled to walk with and be in solidarity with people on the move.
"Now, more than ever, we re conscious of the urgency not only to take action where we are, but also to speak out and give witness to JPIC together. As RSCJ and members of the Sacred Heart Family, we commit to taking deliberate steps to collaborate with one another and with other groups that share our vision and values for justice, peace and integrity of creation.
...This Document, however, "does not represent a conclusion, but rather another new beginning where we now give life to the imperatives in the next phase of this JPI journey: that of living together the call to be artisans of hope in our blessed and broken world...."
