The Common Good

Super Committee Occupies My Miami Winter

Date: November 30, 2011

In my Miami lifetime (now more than half of my 56 years) I have focused on building the kind of community that reflects compassion across numerous divides: race, ethnicity, income, education, ability. I have discovered ways to advocate "appreciatively," leaving room for redemption of all parties. I have promoted connecting through the heart and then applying fact and reason to divisive and perplexing complex community concerns. I have sought common ground by going to higher ground (a favorite Rev. Jim Wallis quote).
