CPT INTERNATIONAL: What would the world look like if CPT succeeded beyond our
wildest dreams? (No prose allowed)
Over the last few months, CPTers have been thinking together about the
story of our work as part of Mission and Presentation Re-visioning Process
(MAPR). We’d like to invite you to join us in that pondering this advent
season. We recognize that CPT’s way of working has developed and matured
over the last twenty-five years and in thinking about revising our mission, we
realized that we need to first be able to describe the kind of world that we
and are our partners are working to create. We need a vision statement
and we need your help to write one.
Over the next two months, we invite you to dream, think, pray and imagine an
answer to this question: Were CPT to succeed fully as a movement, as a
community, and as an organization, what would the world look like?
But there’s one catch…for this step in the process, we’d prefer not to have
non-fiction pieces. In other words, we want you to be creative. We
welcome your poetry, songs, stories, paintings, pen and ink drawings, sketches,
dramas, skits, diagrams, sculptures, engravings, photographs, monologues,
architectural plans, games, dance, pottery, woodcarvings, woodcuts, jewelry,
flower arrangements, films, documentaries, cartoons, collages, decoupage,
stand-up comedy routines, icons or prayers.
Please take the time and space to go deeper with this vision. We’re not
looking for truisms or clichés such as “world peace.” Your responses
will be used in shaping a Working Vision Statement for CPT that we hope to
share with you in April. We also hope to compile your submissions and
share them with you all in some form in the spring.
You can send your submission by mail to one of our offices* or by email
to email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> . Please respond
by 15 February at the latest. Responses before that date preferred.

P.S. If you really can’t imagine doing anything besides writing a few
paragraphs of non-fiction text, then sending that is preferable to
not sending anything at all. We want as many people as possible to
