Aiming to inspire! Call for Spirited Reflections
As a key part of KAIROS’ commitment to faithful action for ecological justice and human rights, we are seeking new Spirited Reflections to help inspire our constituents and others. Spirited Reflections are ethical and theological reflections on the issues facing our world.
We are asking people, particularly from member churches, partners, and networks, to write a theological reflection for an upcoming Sunday.
These gems are used in church services, meetings, or simply as an inspirational reading. And KAIROS posts these each week to the website front page as well as its Facebook page to reach out to a wider global network and to provide resources.
Can you help?
If you would be willing (or if you can recruit others), we ask you to let us know when you plan to send a written piece for specific date over the next year. We are seeking a non-partisan written work of 500-800 words which has not been previously published. This theological reflection, with the theme of social justice, can be tied to the revised common lectionary for that date, linked to a special event or social justice anniversary, or ethically explore an insight relevant to KAIROS. We encourage staying within the scope of KAIROS priorities and mandate and the use of inclusive language. There may be some limited editing.
Please let us know if you can help! For further information or to schedule a reflection, write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416 463-5312 x 238
