We are not advocating community, but making it whole, healing our community.

Whole does not mean of one mind, but it does mean of one heart. We must love our hearts to wholeness. It means accepting people as persons, valuing each and all, bringing the margins to center.

It means that in our workplaces and our neighborhoods, in our government hearings, coffee shops and public places, every place we find each other, we make an effort to include all voices and to hear each other as children of humanity. Especially the people we do not like, the ones who are for sure not like us, the ones we have come to despise and hate, the ones who hate us. And the ones we never notice: the old, the homeless, the smelly.
