Extra wide imaginativeprayer

As you prepare to reflect on the realities of Disaster & Human Dignity, put yourself into the story. This will allow you to empathize with the experience of surviving a disaster. 

  • How would you and your community experience a disaster? 
  • What would you see? What other sensory experiences would you have?
  • How would your life be different if your community was vulnerable to devastating natural or human-influenced disasters?
  • In what ways would your relationships (family, friends, co-workers) look different?

As you place yourself in the story, take a minute to write your response to these questions in a journal. By writing these imagined experiences, your imaginative exercise can guide your response to what you learned in the Encounter. Then, write a short prayer on behalf of those people who are dealing with the experience of disaster, trying to recover and live with human dignity. 

If you'd like to share a prayer with others, visit the prayer wall.
