Franciscan Renewal Center 9

A message from Charlie Brown

Several weeks ago I shared with you the work Father Joe and I did with Kathleen
Flanagan surrounding our FRC business model. I would like to share with you
some of the core values we collaborated on with staff during that period of
study. These behaviors are how we on staff work to emanate goodness with our
community and our guests.
We value relationship over efficiency.
We don’t own the results God does.
Intuition is a superior form of knowing over rationality.
We accept interruptions as potential opportunities for cooperation with the Spirit.
We look to the coincidence of opposites for answers.
We trust in providence.
Proactive collaboration and cooperation honors our interdependence yet accountability
remains clear.
Magnify the voice of the under-heard.
Prayerful discernment.
Within the context of spiritual growth, attendance equals success.
Potential for spiritual growth and transformation equals success.
Our priority is cooperation with the Spirit.
Although some of these sound quite theological, they stir inside and create a culture that
embodies Franciscan values. What does it mean to say one is Franciscan in their being and
behavior? Generosity of spirit, simplicity of nature and poverty through detaching from
“things” that separate us from the love of God are three. Of course, there are more but this
is plenty to begin with. Our staff works in communion with hundreds of volunteers to
provide services to those who visit for any number of our ministry resources. Our evaluations
for staff are also based on these Franciscan behaviors and values.
This winter, the staff directors along with Kathleen Flanagan created the Strategic Plan for
the Casa and recommended it to our board. This document is available online and
describes our purpose and intent for the next four years. All five strategies contain
language referencing Franciscan and Franciscan way components.
My point is this, integrated deep into the core of our collective being, our primary purpose
for existing as an institution is for supporting the friars ministry and mission, working side by
side with the friars in the vision of inspiring and changing society toward peace and
goodness, renewing lives. We do that here leading people to Christ on that journey. We
return the generous love of God by our service to others. This spiritual oasis, called The
Casa, takes one away from the distractions of modern life, and recharges one to become
closer to God. We do this through the lens of Franciscan spirituality. I will begin unpacking
some of the values above next time.
Peace Now,
Peace and Good.
