Redefining Religious Leadership By Kay Lindahl and Kathe Schaaf Published at: http://www.theinterfaithobserver.org The impact of the Parliament of the World’s Religions is hard to quantify. Each gathering sparks action in the personal lives of the attendees, but also in the creation of interfaith groups and organizations around the world. This story is about a new network of women who were inspired by the December 2009 Parliament in Melbourne, Australia.

Wow. We are awed that there are so many of you and that you are so diverse. We are excited and relieved to see that you are already doing politics differently We feel a sense of urgency now to move beyond old boundaries of political, religious or ideological identity and discover a better way forward together. Your candidacy gives you the opportunity to break out of old paradigms and breathe fresh air into our democratic process. Unfortunately, ‘politics as usual’ does not invite - or even allow - the kind of wisdom we need at this time. The old game is driven by power, money and fear. Imagine the impact if we could expect our political leaders to tell the truth, to be kind and curious and to rebuild our democracy by listening - not just to one another but also to their own inner wisdom and moral guidance.
We gather to connect deeply with one another and with our own inner wisdom. We gather to explore the passions that are calling us into sacred service - individually and collectively. And we will come away animated, renewed, strengthened and inspired to new forms of feminine leadership. It IS Time ...
