A House Come Alive

A vignette by Fred Leeds

Let’s compare the human community to a house, a sort of building. Within this building there dwells a spirit – no, not a ghost, but a real and living being. The being is called our shared humanity. The building springs to new life as the human individual – each and every one of us – is born. Like a door opening on eternity, it bridges time to embrace all lives at once. All of humanity passes through in the form of every human being, each and every life in turn…

This community of ours should be just such a place – a place for living, a house come alive. I hope that you agree, dear reader, and that between us we can build it.
