Words and Listening
One of the marks of mission is about loving service towards others, and yet another mark of mission concerns challenging unjust structures.
What do you think might be done to challenge the structures which put people in prison unjustly and what loving service can we perform towards those already suffering in this way?
- How do you feel about these different thoughts?
- What do you think these voices are telling us?
- If you visited one of these people unjustly imprisoned in a cell, what would you say to them?
- Write some thoughts of your own in your diary
You can move on to a new cell-space, but you must imagine that you can only leave with permission and that you are escorted by a guard to that new space.
If you are in a group you can make this feel more realistic by getting your neighbour to pick where you go next, so that you don't get to choose where you go or who your 'cell-mates' are for the next exploration.
