New Theme for June: Look Up

By June 2, 2017 June 28th, 2017 Blogs, Videos

Watch as Rev. Lola introduces our new series for June, “Look Up.” The series was inspired by Chicago artist Tyrue “Slang” Jones’ mural—Slang is a graffiti legend who has defined the movement here in Chicago.

From Rev. Lola in the video:

For Look Up, I invite us out of our tunnel vision thoughts, out of our neurotic tendencies, out of our obsessive thinking that’s keeping us stuck in our limited idea of what’s possible. Two of the best ways to move out of a state of fixed consciousness is the practice of rest and the practice of play. It’s so easy in this digital, hyper-scheduled climate to forget these two critical practices. These are great resources for re-calibration, rejuvenation, and restoration. You are worth those two practices.

    I just recently made a crossroads decision in my life based on my insight that what I most needed right mow was rest and play. Been “hanging in” and “pushing through” for a long time and Im tired! It was fun to read this and find those two words at the center.
