Finding Strength in Community

Budgets. Bailouts. Banks. Bonuses. Tune in to the radio or pick up a newspaper, and it seems like it’s money, money, money all the time.

But among the following Seattle Pacific University alumni, students, and faculty, investing in relationships is more profitable than investing in any stock or mutual fund could ever be. Like The Thomas Parker Society, there are hundreds of smaller communities that have grown out of the larger SPU community. Members help each other put life’s ups and downs into perspective.

In Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, it says, “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”

Maybe he read Ecclesiastes, maybe not, but John Lennon said it this way: “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
