We were talking about economic and cultural development in Roxbury, a Boston neighborhood known for its ethnic diversity and full gospel churches. Eventually she began to tell me her inner story, what makes her turn outward to help a whole community.

"Every single job I've done," she said, "it has been in the back of my mind to be of service to someone. . . . You may see a drug transaction or something that's very depressing . . . but you come back and say . . . let me continue to do the work I need to do to be a force for change." A pretty good life-prayer, and one that's lived.
