At church today, we were reminded that it takes individuals each giving up something and sacrificing for the community, working for the common good, to make a community work.
How have you worked for the common good this week? I worked in a cold room to make sure Sunday school happened today, and worked on planning a documentary screening of The House I Live In in April, to raise awareness of the prison system and its impact on local communities. I feel odd telling you all about what I did this week, but if behind-the-scenes people don’t speak up, then no one knows what goes into making their communities run. So tell me, what did you sacrifice to make sure your communities worked?
