Take what you learned from Sister Ann's "The Story of The Sisters" and spend more time reflecting on the ideas presented. Use these questions for your own reflection or bring them to a group conversation. Learn, Reflect, Grow.
- In the video, we learn that The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence was created to be a spiritual voice heard during the height of the AIDS crisis, while many other religious voices remained silent. In what other areas has organized religion "dropped the ball"? In what ways should organized religion be using their voice?
- The Sisters take their message of hope and joy "into the streets". What is one need in your community that you can seek out to bring hope and joy into a difficult situation? Or in other words, how can we be "nuns" in our local communities?
- Sister Ann tells us that white face and costume were originally used to protect the identity of The Sisters. The tradition has continued, but today the makeup and costumes are used as tools to break barriers that prevent engagement. What are some of the tools you possess that could be used to break down barriers and engage others?
