There were over 20 people who gave up a good chunk of their Monday night to work together on improvements to a local community center. Our church has been engaged in this process for a few months and we moved much closer tonight through our combined efforts. It was a powerful sight to see people from Northridge and from that community step along side each other to serve. We discovered more common ground than we might have originally thought and were able to team up to accomplish more than we expected.
I believe night's like tonight are the best way for our communities to improve as a whole. We have to find ways to stand together for what matters most. The process begins with our open willingness to build trust with each other and the follow through to get the work done.
