There are many interpretations of what makes us human. Some say it’s music. Some say it’s language. Some say it’s prayer… memory… planning… religion… altruism… love… Jack Kerouac wrote in Book of Dreams, “All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all (hu)mankind together.”
Whatever it is that makes us human, one thing is clear: There is no human being without human community. Throughout all human times and places, humanity has reached deep and found that spiritual community is an essential (in the sense of both “of the essence” and “necessary”) part of what makes us human.
Deepen your connection to this community. Celebrate life, nourish the spirit, and commit to justice together.
