The Greeks have a term for “the right and opportune moment.” Kairos is that place on the precipice of change from which, if we so choose, old assumptions give way to a deeper, more authentic worldview.
From the natural landscape to the agricultural, human beings are a huge part of the picture. What can we learn from “the way things work?” If we are paying attention, if we look around us or are actively involved in the change that is such an inevitable part of life, the answer is community. Like the plant systems around us, we are gathering in symbiotic ways, drawn to the ecologies that best suit our particular needs. We long for connection, for the way in which that supports each of us as part of a “together.”
