On Being Together

When working together or if things go wrong,
we acknowledge and work through differences.
In so doing, we transform and enlarge each other.

To nurture our mutual growth,

    this is a place of
        learning, understanding, and sharing;

    this is a place to
        affirm tolerance and compassion;

    this is a place for
        collaborative creativity.

All the aspects of yourself you choose to bring to this place
are welcome here.

Reciprocate! Welcome, embrace and learn from others
(even in the face of apparent hostility or misunderstanding).

To act against this spirit invites ostracism,
a loss that diminishes us all.

Thank you.

From here. Here’s why.
