Leaders of Melanesia communities reflect on Chapter message



Communities hope to be more ‘homely’

22/03/2018: Solomon Islands

Leaders of the communities of the district of Melanesia gathered at the Solomon Islands to reflect on the message of the 22nd General Chapter.

Another purpose of the forum was to draw up this year’s plan for their individual communities based on their reflections. Their plan included helping their communities be more ‘homely’ and welcoming.

During the encounter, held from Feb.12 – 14, the district council presented its strategic plan for the next three years.

Participants began each day with a contemplative prayer reflecting on two questions from the Chapter, that were modified to suit the purposes of the forum.

They were “who is God asking me/us to be in this emerging world as a Brother/as Brothers in community?” and “what is God asking me/us to do in this emerging world as a Brother/as Brothers in community?” 

A press release of the district affirmed “there was a great spirit of openness among the Brothers which allowed each one to share (their reflections) and participate in the group discussions.”
