Are contemplating and action mutually exclusive or part of a “New Wave Emergence?”

Holly Roach in Huffington Post’s Patheos Emerging Voices writes about a spirituality grounded in both action and contemplation. She interviews therapist Teresa Pasquale who talks about the “dynamism between inner and outer life forms” – beyond duality.

“New-wave emergents are missional community developers; they are faith-rooted organizers, contemplatives, theologians, teachers, and activists.”
