Hello dear friends,
In this unprecedented time, I want to tell you why I feel more resolved and certain than ever. My teammate, Jen Casselberry, said it best the other day.
“As I’ve been worrying about how we’re going to make it, thinking about how we’re going to raise enough funds to keep going, whether it’s even okay to ask people to continue to give to our work in this current pandemic, I kept thinking – this is what we’re here for.
This is why we exist – to find the places where people are suffering, or ignored, or neglected, or alone, or unloved, and love them and receive love from them in a radical way. Especially in moments of risk.
What better opportunity, in the midst of all this chaos, to find ways to love people, to join together as communities, to find people who don’t have a community and invite them into ours?
Even if we have to stay 6 feet away from people, we can still find ways to reach out in love. Especially for the sake of our neighbors who can’t get a break – hospital workers, garbage collectors, and so many of our friends around the block.”
At The Simple Way, we are more committed than ever to banding together with our neighbors to build a community where we all belong and thrive.
You make it possible – everyone has a gift to give and a role to play in times like these. Thank you for being with us.
