Individually United

by Sr Nunother  

There are currently sixty-four sisters at the Community of Jesus, and we’re in the process of completing sixty-four quilts. Each quilt has it’s own complex design of color patterns and fabric choices.  No two quilts are alike and this can also be said of the sisters making them!  We differ in size and shape, eye and hair color, age and process of aging, likes and dislikes, environmental and genetic influences, energy levels and opinions. A roomful of quilts with similar color affiliation creates a warm and beautiful harmony, even as each quilt maintains it’s individuality.  And sisters, united in the common goal of serving Christ, have an opportunity to do the same.  To see the richness in differences, to not demand that another person think and see things as I do, is my daily work and prayer.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
