The Ground (by Belle Fox-Matin)
Compass Point #9


Put prayers on the ground,

so many prayers

that not a drop of blood can find its way to the earth,

not a drop can leach into the soil or soul.

Put your prayers on the ground.

Make a place

for God to walk among the horrors and hopes.

There you will find us

standing in the Spirit's wake,

knee-deep in invocations and possibilities.

The Institute

Turns out the word “Institute” has lots of synonyms! Consider just a few: Brainery, Guild, Academy, Plant, Society, Asylum – from such a broad context the Compass Institute came to be, an endeavor of the Episcopal Church in Central NY. We invite you to engage what it means to be a spiritual person in this complex world along with fellow travelers who respect individual differences and value postmodern knowledge.

We hope you’ll join the discussion from time to time, either online or at a Compass event. Who knows what adventures we may find? The possibilities are endless!
