In the Community: Serving Others
Ours is not the task 
of fixing the entire world at once, 
but of stretching out to mend 
the part of the world 
that is within our reach.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
"It is not an untrammeled market economy      that is going to redeem our world. 

It is not strategies of aggression, domination,   and repression that are going to make us safe.         

The secret to transforming the world,              the key to security and safety, lies in cooperation and collaboration. It lies in compassion  for all beings in the wider web of life, and in generosity and love channeled into selfless action on behalf of people                   we will never know or see."
~ Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi text.
If you dedicate yourself to service, the doors will open.

People say, "What is the sense of our small effort?" They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time.

Backpacks for the Homeless
There are many unsheltered homeless individuals throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our Backpacks for the Homeless project is about providing direct support to these individuals by offering backpacks filled with helpful supplies and hygiene kits. After consulting with a local street outreach worker, we have put together a list of supplies we are seeking to package with each backpack. We are aiming for a target of 30 backpacks to start with. We would be grateful for any donations of the following:

It is vital to us that we do what we can to care for this planet we call home. We do this by supporting already existing community gardens in older neighborhoods, where the older residents can benefit from the locally and organically grown food there. These gardens have a rich history of flourishing for decades due to the vision and tireless work of their caretakers, and need more support to continue to thrive.
