In 2022, we are exploring the present moment in our Sikh Dharma Ministry. Earlier this year, we examined the core values that unite us as Ministers and shared intimate reflections from our authors on processing change, loss, trauma and grief during these past few turbulent years.
For this August issue, we are turning our focus outward, to see what possible gifts have been gained—at the same time acknowledging the ever-changing landscape of the world in the midst of a pandemic, political upheaval, and our own Dharmic organizational challenges.
The authors for this issue were asked to reflect on the questions, “How have you integrated the changes you have experienced? What ways, both familiar and new, have you discovered in order to stay engaged with your community? Have certain spiritual connections, practices and/or tools given you the strength and resilience to support you in your service as a Minister?”
We hope these reflections provide inspiration for staying engaged during these times of challenge.
