community

Community is those upon whom our well being depends, those whose actions shape our lives, and whose lives we shape, in return. The condition of our community, its ability to provide for our well being, is determined by the extent to which we realize the other testimonies in our shared life. The way in which we live out simplicity, harmony, integrity and equality is the way in which our community will provide for us, and will shape our lives.

I was one of two friends who yesterday led a discussion at Eastern Suburbs Local Meeting, Melbourne, Australia on the topic of Community. Friends have asked that we seek permission to hold a similar discussion at the Winter Gathering of Victoria Regional Meeting next month. If it is OK, I would like to use your quote on a display card for the display accompanying the discussion.

Blessings and bliss
