Weavings: Confession

February 10, 2016
Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life
 
Articles 1000 to 2000 words, sermons and meditations 500 to 2000 words, stories (fiction or nonfiction) 750 to 2000 words, poems, prayers and liturgical pieces. Weavings is neither a popular devotional guide nor a technical scholarly journal. We are looking for material that has spiritual depth expressed in simple, even poetic, prose. We hope authors will show our readers the subject rather than simply describe or explain it. It is recommended that you order print copies of the journal so as to become familiar with content style. 
 
 
Theme: Confession (Feb/Mar/Apr 2017 issue)
All Proposals Due 03/04/16
 
“Father, I have sinned against heaven.” —Luke 15:18
 
The parable of the prodigal son pivots on a celebration. One son’s repentance and homecoming prompts preparations for a party; the other son’s indignation at the joyful reunion causes a new kind of pain for the father. God desires a healed and joyful relationship with us and among us. What is the role of confession in repentance? How do we recognize and acknowledge what needs healing in ourselves? Our separation from God—sin—causes suffering for ourselves and others. How do we take confession beyond the generic to the personally significant and still understand ourselves to be beloved children of God? How does communal confession affect initiatives for social justice, sustainable living, and mutual support? How can facing our complicity in human suffering propel us to action rather than despair?
