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.
Eight years ago I received a teaching appointment at a new experimental school for elementary through high-school students in the visual and performing arts.
When the school opened, I left a note of encouragement with the principal, which read something like this: "If the impulse behind the founding of this school is a right idea, it is governed by God, and nothing can destroy or hinder the orderly unfoldment of this idea." Little did I know that I would have to hold on to the thought expressed in that note through many difficult, sometimes frightening, circumstances.
