On a mission

Community without a mission is selfish. A mission without community is exhausting.” 

-Phil Zweerink

(Write that in your Moleskin, tweet it, say it 5x fast, yell it from the roof tops, & whisper it to the creepy guy sitting next to you at Starbucks)

Community and mission go together like peanut butter & jelly, milk & cookies, chocolate & peanut butter, chips & salsa, edamame & soy sauce!

  1. You need community! (don’t forget the mission or it’s selfish)
  2. You need a mission! (don’t forget about community or it’s exhausting)

If there is one thing my community does well it’s keeping a good balance of great community while actively pursuing our mission of loving high school students well.

Day 11 of 31: I love my community because they never forget the mission.
