|Sandro Botticelli’s Fortitude|
Conversazione is an Italian word. It is defined as a scholarly or formal gathering where something related to literature or the arts is discussed. The PNEU held these talks in order to drum up interest in the organization, often times with Miss Mason as the speaker. Each LER begins with a conversazione where I try to share something on my heart that is related to the theme. Each year the Lord brings the elements together in what is, to me, such a surprising way.
The 2017 LER is now over. At least the actual event is over, but I suspect that we will all be thinking about the many truths shared over the course of the weekend. So here is the audio of my speech. Please enjoy listening to it and do let me know your thoughts! I have posted the picture for the picture study and the poem by Mason from The Saviour of the World. Please have those ready when you listen so that you can participate in the immersions and thereby engage in the fullness of the talk. Also, see the link for Highest Thinking and Simplist Living by Mary Beuving at the end.
Teaching from Peace,
You might also enjoy Mary Beuving’s workshop on Highest Thinking and Simplist Living!
Here is a post I wrote about The Single Eye.
Please note that the correct reference for the Fortitude section by Mason that I read in the speech is Ourselves, Book 2, p. 41.
