"Breaking Barriers": The natural world abhors a barrier. Plants, water, soil, wind cannot be contained forever. Walls can be erected, but when life needs to break through, it will. Instead of resisting new life, neighbors can embrace newcomers, those seekers of a better life and show them the gift of acceptance and hospitality.
"Daily we have this choice-whether we're gonna live open, generous, loving lives or whether we're gonna wall ourselves off from the rest of the world." - Curtis Millsap
"I see other...[who] with earnest zeal build up walls, but neglect to build up their own character..." - Bernard of Clairvaux
