Day 269

Power to the People!  Individually we can be effective; collectively we are undeniable.  This is just another of the many reasons to practice community.  Not just join a community, but practice the art of being in community.  It calls upon our deepest skills: active listening, patience, humility, and compassion.  And certainly in community there are times when we must set our own desires aside, that the collective may move forward.  If our peers are practicing community we can rest assured that our voice was heard, and that what we will gain will far exceed any concession we’ve made.  Today, let us engage with our community, wherever we may find it, and ever expand the holy community of all souls.  For our communities we give thanks.  Blessed Be, and Amen.
