Stirring discussion at church tonight–and conversation following–leaves me excited to continue the pursuit of what the Lord would have me do as part of the Albion community. Thanks, Cini, for the community development articles you sent.

In at least two of the articles I’ve skimmed, the below quote was mentioned. Leave it to the founder of Taoism, Lao Tsu, to articulate this.

Go to the People;
Live among them;
Love them;
Learn from them;
Start from where they are;
Work with them;
Build on what they have.

But of the best leaders,
When the task is accomplished,
The work completed,
The people all remark:
“We have done it ourselves”
