In July, 2009 I returned to the USA to participate in a conference on Small Christian Communities (SCCs) in Erie, Pennsylvania and to give a report on SCCs in Eastern Africa. During one Morning Prayer Session we were asked to turn to our neighbor and share a personal story on community and sharing. I shared the story of the previous week when I visited my brother’s home in New Vernon, New Jersey. When I arrived my three-year-old grandniece Becca Healey came running up to me with a lollipop in her hand. She said, "Uncle Joe, would you like a lick?" Now that’s community and sharing!
