Get to know our members
Each of our members brings a unique perspective and skillset to the Grail in the US. Learn more about them!
One of the most unusual (and spiritually centering) jobs I’ve had in my life was herding goats on a farm in southern Spain (although it wasn’t so centering when they would bolt off and jump into the neighbor’s olive trees!).
I have a bit of an Enneagram obsession. If anyone wants to talk about the Enneagram with me — I am always game! If you aren’t familiar with it, check out the book The Wisdom of the Enneagram or you can just start with Richard’s Rohr’s website.
What do you think is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today?
Late stage, free market capitalism, which perpetuates neo-imperialism, power hierarchies, and environmental plunder. We have to resist being further and further pulled into commodification of every aspect of our lives.
Which Grail sister would you like to know more about?
Beth Rosen. I love Beth’s sense of humor and insights.
What are you doing as your Grail mission focus or work?
All of my work is very ‘Grail-like’ – I am a community organizer, working on immigration justice currently; I am a feminist religious leader – transforming a local faith community as a prototype for the next evolution of church… and more!
Name 2 of your favorite things.
Avocados and hiking in the mountains!
Final Thoughts …
“I want to ask you, as clearly as I can, to bear with patience all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves. . . For everything must be lived. Live the questions now, perhaps then, someday, you will gradually, without noticing, live into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
The Grail in the US is a movement where all members are encouraged to advance our shared vision in the manner that best befits their interests, abilities and the needs of their community. We are individual threads that together weave a tapestry.
