March’s Soul Matters theme is “what does it mean to be a community of balance? ”
Often when we think about balance many of us immediately think about calm and rest. Yes, balance has many more meanings than just taking a break from life. Being a people of balance is often the opposite of keeping things calm. For example, in order to move toward a balance of justice, we need to upset the current state of things. Oppressive systems need to be challenged and toppled. Being out of sync with “the way things are” is the first step toward making a better balance for all.
