We all live in a community in one way or another and we all have an opportunity to make it better in some way.
It’s easy to get caught up in our personal lives and forget that we have an obligation to be responsible members of our communities. For some of us, it may need to take a moment to consider how to be more responsible for the communities in which we live. For those of us who live in large cities, we can start with our neighbourhoods. Anything we do on a small level will automatically ripple out into the larger system.
One approach to community responsibility is to consider what you have to offer and find ways to bring that into your community. Even a small open house in an apartment building can accomplish a lot in terms of making people feel more connected and comfortable with each other.
Your particular vision, gifts, and strengths are part of what makes your community unique, so as you recognize them in yourself, feel free to offer them to those who live in your vicinity. Whether your offerings are visionary or practical, they are the very essence of community.
