I love a chapter from "The Prophet" where Prophet Kahlil Gibran speaks of religion: "Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations? Who can spread his hours before him saying, 'This for God and this for myself; this is for my soul, and this other for my body?'" For me, this suggests that the way we live expresses our deepest faith. I thought about that in recognizing how important our churches have been in supporting our community. For example, at our recent city-wide cleanup, almost all of our churches showed up to help.
