Into the Fray?

We Trust Us 2

The fear being spread in this presidential campaign is unreal (literally), unhealthy, disrespectful and distasteful. The “presidential hopefuls” (that’s an ironic phrase) are ignoring our common hopes and dreams only in effort to win votes, as they try to scare us to think differently than we actually do. They long for us to be swept into their frenzy and fray, which would fray relationships with good people who are inherently trustworthy.

We know better. Even with differences we may have person-to-person and community-to-community, we trust each other much more than they give us credit for. How do I know this? Because, I can be trusted, and so can you, and you, and you. You have a choice to listen to them or to listen to your heart and your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Choose the latter.

Build a Bigger Table

Build a Bigger Table v4Just imagine being at this table with people who have arrived from all over the place, many of whom you don’t know. The odds are that whoever you end up sitting next to will have the same dreams and concerns that you do: for loved ones to be healthy and safe; for pure water to drink, clean air to breathe and good food to eat; and for freedom to give everyone opportunities to thrive…

This says it all about the value of trust, the limitations of fear, the joys of shared wealth, and the importance of community. Fear causes decay. Trust brings growth. Please, come sit, and welcome your neighbor to the table.
