in relationship with others.
Sometimes this may be transitory - a brief encounter which enriches both our lives.
Sometimes this relationship is long term and durable -
each person bearing witness to the life of the other.
Sometimes we are drawn to another because of our like-mindedness.
Sometimes the community is a support group of people travelling a similar but not identical journey. We are all unique human beings.
In each relationship or community, we become a circle of friends, a vessel of hope.
