"....what we are called to do – is to love each other, through service and advocacy for everyone." - quote from Rev. Mary Alyce Burleigh
Please check out the attached message from Rev. Mary Alyce Burleigh about inclusiveness and creating a welcoming community. She presented this beautiful message to us at the Welcome to Kirkland event this past Saturday and her words live with us as we continue our journey through life. Her very thoughtful and heartwarming message teaches us about how we can overcome the challenges of our past and embrace a welcoming and inclusive future.
Here is another quote from her keynote address:
"It is my belief that our nation is “Great” because we have been willing to work to overcome our checkered past and recognize that the contributions, hard work and a cultural tapestry that includes folks from all over the world has made us who we are – Not a melting pot as much as a tossed salad – with each group contributing their unique culture that has become one of the most envied in the world, one that strives to be a nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. For all!"
