Each year, the Church of the Common Ground community participates in the building of a Habitat for Humanity home alongside our friends at St. Anne's Episcopal Church. This year we were there just after the foundation had been laid and the walls were up. Our projects included helping to put shingles on the roof and get the insulation put in. We helped with the building blocks of a new home.
And, we met the lovely woman who will share this home with her two children. We worked and laughed with other volunteers. We shared on this day the smiles and joy and work that are the building blocks of community.
Beautiful and blessed building blocks! How have you helped to lay the building blocks of community today?
