• However, community is first of all a quality of the heart. It grows from the spiritual knowledge that we are alive not for ourselves but for one another.
    Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own.
    The question, therefore, is not 'How can we make community?' but, 'How can we develop and nurture giving hearts?'
