In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
The mechanics of the Mobius strip are mysterious, but its message clear: whatever is inside us continually flows outward to help form, or deform, the world — and whatever is outside us continually flows inward to help form, or deform, our lives. — Parker Palmer, Quaker educator and spiritual activist
In Today's Workshop...
We looked at what wholeness means in our lives. We explored wholeness from two angles. The first was through the image of the Mobius strip. A Mobius strip is interesting because the inside is constantly moving to the outside and the outside is moving to the inside. The same can be said about our spiritual lives—our inward beliefs and feelings can have a transformative effect on our outward actions and ways of being, and our outward actions and ways of being can affect our inward beliefs and feelings. To be whole, we should pay attention to integrating our inner and outer selves.
We also looked at what wholeness means in a community. We explored what our responsibilities are to others in the community and what we might expect or need from the larger community. In this way, wholeness can be seen through how we are integrated into our larger faith community.
