“We build on foundations we did not lay.
We warm ourselves at fires we did not light.
We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant.
We drink from wells we did not dig.
We profit from persons we did not know.
We are ever bound in community."

Rev. Peter Raible (paraphrased from Deuteronomy 6:10-12)

Thank you for a wonderful sermon that caputured some very difficult concepts in a wholistic way. It has been transforming to me to see the many connections and intersections between food, immigrants and the environment in a new light. I am bringing this knowledge that we have collaborated on, and grown together with, to my School District Equity Team and teachers so that we do a better job of honoring the complexitities of working with people of color.
