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.
Last year my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, was contacted by the local clergy association about homelessness in our small town. An ecumenical council was being formed that included members and clergy from eight local churches.
I felt drawn to volunteer, and soon I found myself as chairman of fund-raising! Our aim was to get families with children out of tents, cars, and state-subsidized motels and into decent housing.
