“The word is always a word for others. Words need to be heard. When we give words to what we are living, these words need to be received and responded to. A speaker needs a listener. A writer needs a reader.
When the flesh – the lived human experience – becomes word, community can develop. When we say, ‘Let me tell you what we saw. Come and listen to what we did. Sit down and let me explain to you what happened to us.
Wait until you hear whom we met,’ we call people together and make our
lives into lives for others. The word brings us together and calls us
into community. When the flesh becomes word, our bodies become part of
a body of people.”

~ Henri J.M. Nouwen

Dawg’s View: Unseemly hot Sunday at Evandale Market. Many Pats and compliments, all greatfully received.

Community

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”

~ Jean Vanier

Dawg’s View (Evandale Markets): Quite pleased with my ability and contribution to community, to bring people to~gether , my head that launched a thousand pats, perhaps a slight exaggeration but I do seem to help people forget their troubles and focus on what’s true and well meaning with life, pat the dog! Little treats gratefully accepted.
