Today Dec.24, is the 5th day of Yule and is dedicated to Community and the virtue of hospitality. At this time of year whether we go visiting and have people over to our own homes, it is important to practice hospitality, being a good host and a good guest. By sharing our bounty with others, we say thanks for the gift of others in our lives.
As in times past, community is important to our survival. We rely on each other especially in a world that is becoming more and more integrated. While many of us can feel isolated as we may interact less directly with our neighbours, especially in urban areas, we still rely on the goods and services provided by our communities and the larger world around us. This is a good time to think of ways we can make our communities better and how we could volunteer to achieve this.
