Weavings: The Self as Beloved

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life
 
Articles 1000 to 2000 words, sermons and meditations 500 to 2000 words, stories (fiction or nonfiction) 750 to 2000 words, poems, prayers and liturgical pieces. Weavings is neither a popular devotional guide nor a technical scholarly journal. We are looking for material that has spiritual depth expressed in simple, even poetic, prose. We hope authors will show our readers the subject rather than simply describe or explain it.  
 
 
Theme: “The Self as Beloved” (Nov/Dec 2015/Jan 2016 issue)
All Proposals Due – 02/06/15
 
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”—Mark 12:31
 
In Life of the Beloved, Henri Nouwen explains, “Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the ‘Beloved.’ Being the Beloved expresses the core truth of our existence.” In this season of Advent, we explore aspects of compassion for ourselves and of the mystery of Christ in us, “the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27). How does the knowledge that we are beloved by God, held in God’s loving gaze, free us and give us a mandate to show compassion to ourselves? What does it mean to have compassion for ourselves in a tradition that focuses heavily on compassion for the other? How does the nurturing of self-compassion foster empathy? How do practices such as sacred gaze, mirror mysticism, stillness, silence, balance, and others offer insight into seeing ourselves as beloved? Where are we seeing models for compassion for the self?
