Parenting as a Spiritual Practice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just wanted to share this beautiful post on The Motherlode blog of the New York Times, written by a rabbi and mother.

 

She writes:

Quote:
The philosopher Sara Ruddick talks about “maternal thinking,” the ways in which caring for small children gives rise to a unique kind of intellectual and emotional flexibility and responsiveness. She suggests that doing this work changes how you engage the world in useful and important ways. I wonder what would happen if the experiences, issues and questions that come out of parenting were taken seriously in our thinking about prayer, theology and religious practice? 

 

I just really loved this and needed to share. Enjoy! You can find the full post here.
