A HELPING COMMUNITY


As we seek to become more and more economically independent, as we become more and more secure, we remove ourselves from our need to be "helped." We separate ourselves from the possibility of community and miss the opportunity to experience the richness of loving relationships. Henri Nouwen once wrote, "…every time I am willing to break out of my false need for self-sufficiency and dare to ask for help, a new community emerges -- a fellowship of the weak -- strong in the trust that together we can be a people of hope for a broken world."
