Welcome to the Vine, a community of people who are on their own journeys, but who also have commitment to each other and vision for the communities in which we live; a vision for hope and re-discovering core values for ourselves, our families, and the society in which we all live. Is hope even possible to experience when we’re surrounded by so many crises, illnesses, broken relationships, dysfunction?…yes. Can values be re-shaped, changed and learned?...yes. How many of us can remember a time – perhaps when we were young – when our extended families spent a lot more time together? Neighbours never hesitated to drop in for a coffee. And our parents and grandparents made it a priority to visit with family and friends.
