    Heart Matters: “Mother Teresa”

    Fran Grace reflects on the legacy of Mother Teresa’s teaching, “Do Small Things with Great Love,” as she has witnessed it in her “Compassion” course, taught to college students since 2005. Though not Catholic, Fran has been to the Missionaries of Charity motherhouse in Calcutta and was honored to attend the Canonization of Mother Teresa in Rome. In this segment, she interviews four graduating seniors who give moving accounts of how they applied Mother Teresa’s teaching in their community service assignment for the Compassion course. (Sydney Bennett – homeless youth. Sydney Finkbohner – hospice. Caitlin Bozner – Miss Amazing pageant, children with cancer, veterans, teenagers with body image struggles. Olivia Tassanari – hospice.)

    Fran Grace interviews Megan McFeeley, creator of the film, As She Is, which was screened in March 2017 at the University of Redlands. They discuss Sufism, feminine consciousness, and the film’s message about our vital connection to the Earth, human relatedness, and the deep resources within. The film shows Megan, a former executive in the software industry, on a spiritual journey to recover the lost parts of herself, which are also the lost parts of our culture – the inner life, intuition, creativity, collaboration, and tending to the web of life.

    Belvie Rooks & Dedan Gills: “Growing a Global Heart”

    Belvie Rooks & Dedan Gills, the co-founders of Growing a Global Heart, speak to an intergenerational gathering at the University of Redlands. They share their story to an audience riveted by their photographs, poetry, personal narrative and global vision. Their critical moment of awakening came when they stood at the Door of No Return at the Elmina Slave Dungeon in Ghana. The anger and grief over the erasure and enslavement of their ancestors was transformed unexpectedly into the vision that inspires the ceremonial planting of millions of memorial trees to honor the forgotten souls of the past – the victims of urban violence, the Underground Railroad and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Route in West Africa. In 2019, key parts of this presentation were published in two books: I Give You the Springtime of My Blushing Heart: A Poetic Love Song by Dedan Gills & Belvie Rooks, and The Power of Love by Fran Grace.
