A HEART FOR COMMUNITY
It's natural to care deeply about community. Real love for family extends to neighbors—and overflows for the whole of society. This occasional column tells of how a spiritual perspective has been helping Sentinel readers help others and make a contribution to healing some of the collective challenges facing communities today.
Several years ago I began writing regularly to a dear friend who was housebound, and my weekly "chat" about our farm and family seemed to bring her a much-welcomed touch of the outside world.
Thinking that there must be many other such "confined" folk in our community, and with a genuine desire to "give of [my] heart's rich overflow" (as Hymn 139 in the Christian Science Hymnal puts it), I set about expanding this outreach by starting a program called Friendship Letters.
