“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Mother Teresa
What is community?
Quite simply, community is a group of people who live, work and/or play together.
Communities consist of neighbourhoods, work teams, families and clubs, etc.
Healthy community is:
A safe place where each member can respectfully be uniquely themselves;
where disagreements are OK because each person is loved;
where each individual is recognized for the gifts they bring to the table;
where others need us and we can count on them when we’re in need;
I want to be more intentional about building community.
I want my family, my team to know I’ve got their backs.
I want to know they’ve got mine.
I want to really listen without judgment.
I want to build people up, not tear them down.
I want to be part of something bigger than myself.
Is community important to you?
