god with a lowercase "g"
We've read Neil Postman, who speaks of one's purpose as "god" (with a lowercase "g") which, of course, has led me to wonder who or what my god is... what drives me to do all the things I do in so many different arenas. I have to say that my god is the god of community. Community can take on so many different forms. My nuclear family, made up of me (the mama), the dada, and the two boys, is a community. It is within the larger community of our extended family. Then we live in a community, and I work in another community. Of course, all of them are interconnected. Most of what I do and have done in the last few years has been for the betterment of the community.
