I’m in the midst of an intensive training time for Upaya Zen Center’s Buddhist Chaplaincy Program, so I’ve been absent from the blogging world for a while.
This past Sunday, we graduated 18 inspiring people who are re-defining what it means to be a chaplain. I’m so proud to be involved in the program and a witness to each of their journeys. One of those graduates is Penny Alsop, who has created a beautiful website called Great Big Crazy Love. As Penny writes,
Great Big Crazy Love is the virtual manifestation of bearing witness to the joys and sufferings of our world. Born of the inspiration of an improbable Buddhist chaplain trained at the Upaya Zen Center, trips to the Gulf of Mexico in response to the explosion of the Deep Water Horizon rig, visits to prisons and the desire to help fund spiritual first-response efforts, she drew the circle wide enough for everyone’s story.
I invite you to enjoy Penny’s Great Big Crazy Love to see and hear more of the stories of these people that I am proud to call my friends and colleagues. And go out there and create some of your own great, big, crazy love!
