In talking with some friends recently who were off to visit other mutual friends, I heard myself saying “give them our best”.
And later on, I thought about this very common idiom that we hear shared so often.
And I realized the actual power behind it.
Because giving others your best would be a significantly meaningful gift.
On Sunday afternoon at Riverside Park, The Compassionate Community Faith Alliance held the first Annual People Fest. It was a multicultural celebration with food, music, dance, theater, dress, and information from many different organizations and cultural groups – spreading understanding, appreciation, and trust.
The Parenting Place joined in. And we focused on providing the universal language and power of Play for the children who attended – entertaining them with hands-on activities that needed no interpretation.
And for this 1st Annual People Fest … the people showed up.
It was a wonderful turn-out of all ages – a positive response from our community to share, support and connect with one another.
“Give them our best.”
I believe that message was loud and clear on Sunday afternoon at Riverside Park.
