A friend (and co-worker) and I have an ongoing conversation about how difficult it is to communicate what Connecting Caring Communities does and is. .
CCC exists to build meaningful relationships that foster safe, caring, whole communities. We are about what our name says: connecting, caring and our communities/neighborhoods/city. I just presented it with some stories to a group of about 15 wonderful ladies. But, like many, I don’t know if they get IT.
I came back to my office to an email from this friend (who is also talking with folks today). Her aha’s this morning:
We don’t get IT because we’ve already got it. (resources/connections)
We don’t get IT because we can’t see IT. (Beyond words…must be experienced from the inside out = stories)
We don’t get IT because it is so simple.
We don’t get IT because it is so huge–and WILL change the world. (The Kingdom of Heaven)
We don’t get IT, just like the people in Jesus’ day didn’t get IT. IT is too good to be true!
We will only get IT when we WAKE UP…and WAKING UP is a process. When it happens, you can never not get IT again.
We’re all still waking up. Let’s rise and shine!
