How are you called to resist productivity?
Each week we'll highlight a current event or ongoing story from world and reflect on it through the lens of the gospel. First check out this article linked below.
Rest is anything that connects your mind and body
Reflect and Act:
In this week's gospel we hear about Mary using precious resources not for economic productivity or financial gain, as Judas really wants, but to take a moment and help herself and her dear friend Jesús to rest. In the above blog post, Tricia Hersey talks about the ways we can follow in Mary's footsteps and resist the "grind culture" of capitalism to liberate ourselves from the idea that we must always be productive. What would it look like this week for you to create non-productive time for yourself? Who are the people for whom rest is less and less of an option in your community? What small action could you take this week to create more space for rest in the world? Take some time to share your thoughts with your group.
