Sunday, January 28, 2018: The Community in Which We Live
It’s Sunday evening and we are just winding down a strenuous weekend. Over the past few weeks, the presidential elections have dominated the TV news, debates on the Internet, in pubs and in families. Some people are celebrating, others are saddened. Whatever side you find yourself on, trust that the presidential election is not the most important thing that should be driving our lives. How many times have you met the president, talked to him or at least seen him up close? The president represents us officially but is removed from our daily lives (spatially and for many, ideologically as well). But each and every day we have the chance to meet and talk to people who live in our immediate surroundings – our neighbors, people who live in our apartment buildings, in our districts, town or village. Do we take advantage of these opportunities?
