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 taught at an Asian university during a time when students there were very active politically. As I walked to class, I was often met with tear gas bombs landing at my feet, until I learned to call ahead to see if a demonstration had been scheduled.
The university's newspaper became radically antigovernment and anti-American. The government warned the school that they would take harsh actions if the paper were not censored. The previous year another university had its paper closed by the government. Some students were arrested.
