Love is ultimately how we connect with each other and our environment. It is about finding and expressing joy.
Love is the bedrock of the four topics we have decided to focus on here.
- Giving & Receiving
- Family & Friends
There are a myriad of other topics we could use as the focus for our exploration of the evolving expression of love. Ashura, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Yom Kippur, Ullambana, Qingming, Ramayana, Social Work, Human Rights, Community Development and the list goes on would all work.

C. S. Lewis

Ralph Waldo Emerson
