Community Healing & Justice

Living only to advance our personal welfare misses a fundamental truth – that while we are distinct, none of us are separate. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. captured this understanding beautifully when he wrote in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” We live, love and languish together. And because of this truth, we pursue Community Healing & Justice as essential conditions for human wellbeing.
