Ideas That Nourish and Help Us Thrive Together
The Leadership Council of URI in North America has adopted “Tending the Human Garden” as our ongoing theme. Now, most healthy gardens need:
• Water• Clean air• Sunshine• Nutrient-rich soil• Tending• Harvesting• Diversity
How might that theme be interpreted in the work of your local community or Cooperation Circle? For some it might mean nourishing the growth of our children with an understanding of and respect for people of different faiths and cultures. For others it might be cultivating a climate of fair and just treatment for immigrant workers. Still others might see a need for opening up the windows of dialogue in their community to encourage exchanges about the potential for interfaith collaboration on feeding the homeless or protecting the environment. We’d like to hear how this theme might be interpreted in your local community and how it might inspire local action. As Margaret Mead encouraged us all, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Please send your comments, dreams and plans to the regional coordinator.
