“Our communities can only flourish in as much as their weakest members flourish. And so whatever resources or power we have at our disposal, we must give them away to our neighbors in need, because we owe it to them as beings made in God’s image.” –Dave Huber
As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts in response.
