Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 6/17/09

// Jean Vanier English



Creating Community

A community is only being created when its members accept that they are not going to achieve great things, that they are not going to be heroes, but simply live each day with new hope, like children, in wonderment as the sun rises and in thanksgiving as it sets. Community is only being created when they have recognized that the greatness of humanity lies in the acceptance of our insignificance, our human condition and our earth.

- Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p.109
