Getting a wider angle on life

th-115

Wide angle
More than what I used to see
Wide angle
More than what is near to me
Where I once was afraid
To open up my eyes
Now this wide angle
Has turned my fear into surprise

Who are these people in the video below and what are they doing?

They are Catch citizens participating in our community of people who are opening their eyes from isolation to a wider angle on life, a wider world to interact in, a wide world to influence, a wider world impact.

They are learning to stand in other people’s shoes so they might understand their perspective and respond with empathy instead of judgement.

They are discovering that God’s grace has turned their fear into surprise, giving  them courage when there was none.

Who are these Catch Citizens in the video ? People just like you. Watch the brief one minute video below and respond if you are able to help us raise the final $5,000 towards our goal of $15,000, and conclude our campaign before Friday. Click on the video to contribute.

Yours for the journey,
John and for Marti too
