Call the attention of persons to community

Call the attention of persons to community. Here it is that they get their sustenance and nurture; here it is that they belong; here it is that they can find life expansive. Life expands when you help others. It is not about getting for yourself, but about about expanding lifeā€”life of the community and life itself.

Will people understand, let alone take this in?

It may be a matter of reminding people of their own stories of giving and being part of a community. Ask them for these stories.

When have you given yourself heart and soul to some one else? To a project or movement? Dropped everything because some one needed you? What did that feel like?
