What is the greatest need in our community?

What is the greatest need in our community? The greatest need is community. We do not live until our voice is heard. Community is where we make the effort to hear one another. Hearing goes beyond listening: it takes exertion (here, hear, is the greater effort, not with the speaker); it takes investment of the hearer’s essence. Hearing draws life outward. To the extent we do not hear one another, our community is dying; to the extent we work to hear one another, and precisely to that extent, we live.
