Looking Ahead, Again

We hold conversation in
revolutionary love,
welcome conversation as
transformational action.

The vision: Everywhere we go, 
we know people. We find 
the circle widens each next 
conversation we have.

Imagine: Strangers no more. 
Better than internet and
surer than social media,
we care about each other.

How will poverty survive
this transformation?  
How will immorality persist?
Tell me this is not good news.



Inspired by the NewCORE Sunrise Starbucks Conversation at 6AM, Wednesday, May 30th ~ Ground-zero ~ after Tuesday's Town Hall on MSNBC, "Everyday Racism in America."

We had a shocking incident of racism here the other day. It left wounds. I love the words "revolutionary love", and conversation as "transformational action." Cool. That is where hope lies. Boots on the ground, talking, sharing, lifting each other up.

How very true, Susan. Conversations beget friends in a widening circle! It is a practical vision!
