This second set of three rhythms describe how we actively participate in and transform our worlds. They have to do with the major ways in which we find and create meaning in our lives.
The three rhythms into which I’ll categorize our active responses are good work, embracing others, and journeying together. The first of these emphasizes our need for embodied and purposeful engagement with the world. The second discusses our primary social attitudes and practices, and the third, growing out of the other two, focuses on the intentionality of a journey together. On this journey we invite others to join us as we walk toward wholeness, toward a more just and peaceful world. The active rhythms are all seasoned by the responsive rhythms and lead to the final and most inclusive rhythm of yearning for home.
