Hey LB: Do you like community and do you enjoy reading? Then check out this book, and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.
We have enough right here in LB despite all the talk of lack and scarcity. We need begin by getting to know one another’s gifts and passions. We need to be willing to learn from one another and teach one another. We need to create quality time for one another, not just events and entertaining guests, but conversation that builds trust and allows for honesty and vulnerability.
This is the “Heart” of We Love Long Beach. We invite you to the table to break bread and sup with us, because we need each other more than we ever thought, hoped, or dreamed. We need to invite one another into the mess and joy that is our lives at times, to be welcomed, listened to, and accepted.
Maybe this book and others can be the hinge to the door that opens up our lives to one another. It might be a place where we sense, maybe even for the first time belonging and love. These things take time and patience, but in the end what could be better?
