"Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We are all called to connect with community, both locally and globally. We remember the wise words from MLK, that we are all a part of the interrelated structure of reality. As we seek to deepen our connection with God, we also seek to have a deeper understanding and compassion for the world. Living in the 21st century affords us many opportunities to connect with people all across the world. Asheville Wesley desires to constantly grow in awareness of issues that many of our neighbors are facing and celebrate the diversity that is all around us. Many of our conversations will take us outside of our own bubble and make connections with what is going on in the world and how we might be a part of being advocates of life to the fullest for all children of God.
Locally, there are many opportunities to serve and build relationships with diverse groups that are in our own city. We do this through involvement with local churches, non-profit agencies, and seeking intentional partnerships. If you have a heart or social justice, for working with the homeless, for tutoring children, or seeking those whom Jesus sought. Then we hope to be the place where we can work together. Asheville Wesley is continually looking for opportunities to connect with the global community through education and travel opportunities.
