December 2020 - A Note From ABQ CSL Prosperous Life Team
A couple of years ago we as a community went through a very involved process to determine what was ours to do. We set our mission, Love In Action: Transforming Lives -> Transforming Communities as the answer to that question. We deeply committed ourselves to realizing our Oneness with Spirit and allowing that impulse of Love to move us to right action.
This year we have been asking ourselves again and again, “What is ours to do in the midst of a global pandemic, in the face of so much injustice, and inequity…and how do we do it in a virtual setting?” And so we pivoted, and pivoted, and pivoted some more.
We realized our message, tools, and practices were needed more than ever. And, to meet this need, we created a daily call and text offering called Spirit Calling. We knew that connection and relationships were more important than ever, so we made our small groups, SpiritGroups, available virtually to participants across the country. We are seeing that the impact of the pandemic and more have only increased poverty and economic hardships in our communities, so we expanded our cash assistance program and have given thousands to folks who needed it. We also know the need will grow, so we have made it ours to do through circling up around each other to alleviate poverty through our Circles USA partnership.
