The Life is a monthly feature about the unique, challenging and very specific lives of women religious around the world. The format is simple: GSR poses a question and publishes responses from several sisters who are part of a panel of 20. Read more about the project.
The Life - Caring for our common home includes an eco farm in the Philippines, biodiversity in New Zealand, gardening for the cycle of life, a one-minute act to make a difference, and a religious community founded to heal and protect the planet's life systems
The Life - Sister panelists consider how religious formation that emphasizes developing oneself incorporates Jesus' words, "If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."
The Life - The panelists this month have lived in Ireland, India, Kenya, Pakistan, South Sudan, Uganda, Zimbabwe and the United States and have plenty of examples of ministering among those who are not Christians.
