WHERE TO GO FROM HERE? Do you want to continue discussing cultural change?
Do you personally want to develop integral consciousness? Can CCCR/Council of the Baptized develop an integral culture within its own organization? Do we want to foster growth of integral consciousness in our local church for the sake of its mission? Do we expect Archdiocesan leadership to have integral consciousness?
___I recognize that my reality is not THE reality and I do not expect that all other people should look at things my way.
___ I recognize that my view of reality is shaped by my experience and the culture I live in.
___ I realize that my reality is sometimes constructed by my ego needs, and I am willing to consider that possibility.
___ I need a supportive community of people who have a common worldview and a common view of the mission of the Church so that action can be planned and implemented.
__ I recognize that I am and that CCCR/Council of the Baptized is for the most part in the "postmodern worldview", and I am ready to move on to a more integral worldview.
___I recognize that each worldview has some values that are necessary to the society as a whole.
___ traditional worldview—law, order, behavioral expectations, common education in values, reasonableness
___ modern worldview—evidence based knowledge, systems, efficiency, can-do mentality
___ postmodern worldview—equalizing, global sensitivity, view from the ground, consensus
___ I acknowledge that, when carried to excess, values of the worldviews become pathologies.
___ I am willing to practice talking about my own reality and listening to others talk about theirs, more like a dance than a tennis match.
___ I am willing to reason (use evidence and logic) with others about my view of reality.
How do I think about God-talk?
___ My ideas about God are integral to my worldview. I can't talk about the world without using God-language.
___ My ideas about God are part of my worldview, but they are not the same as my consciousness of God. I can use God-language sometimes and not at other times.
____ I want to have a common language and common belief about God within the CCCR/Council of the Baptized community and use God-language freely.
___ I am willing to let each person use his/her own God language in talking about faith, but I would like to avoid God talk when other topics are under discussion.
___ I want to keep the talk about worldviews at the philosophical level and avoid God-talk because it distracts from the human work of getting along and getting the work done.
___ Other formulation?
