Friends, I am grateful to have images so close to my heart featured in this gallery at The Community House in Hinesdale. Please stop by all month to view the gallery or tonight for wine, beer, and light appetizers as well as a discussion with me at 7pm.
What if we served or volunteered as if those we engage with were our family? Our dear ones? What if we listened as we desire to be listened to? What is we realized we are fellow travelers not those who have already arrived?
Through my own volunteering and partnering with organizations doing great and hard work across the globe I am again and again reminded that we are a human family and when we break down barriers of those giving and those receiving, we truly open ourselves to the rich experience of allowing ourselves to be changed by volunteering. This gallery is a collection of images captured that share stories of this volunteering working with organizations I deeply respect and am grateful to partner with to share their stories with dignity and intention.
“The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family too small.”
We are a human family and when we serve with that in mind we are profoundly changed.
