Welcome to the month of Beloved Community

Reflection Corner  
From our Soul Matters packet:

“…Beloved community is bigger than we usually imagine. 
It’s not just about building a better world; 
it’s also about building up each other’s faith. 

We are in a battle not just against the division between us, 
but also the doubt within us. 

What we really need to hear about beloved community is 
not just that we can create it, 
but that we can count on it.

This month, may we make sure we all 
bless each other with both of those messages.”


How are you contributing to creating Beloved Community?
Can you identify Beloved Community you can count on?
