Finding Community in Unusual Times

We are truly living in unusual times.  As our “normal” lives are being turned upside down, we’re finding new ways of communicating and working – new ways of doing a lot of the things that maybe seemed second-nature or easy to us.  One thing that hasn’t changed but may be more apparent now than ever is the importance of PEOPLE.  Each day we decide to keep things moving; we do it for the people in our [...]
