Gift of Others
We exist to be miracle workers for one another, and it is in community
that we are called to grow. It's in community that we come to see God
in the other. It's in community that we see our own emptiness filled
up by the other. It's community that calls me beyond the pinched horizons
of my own life, my own country, my own race, and gives me the gifts I
do not of myself have within me.
