Principle 1: Come Together

On a hot July morning, members of the Thistle Farms and Magdalene community gathered together in a Nashville field, under a blue sky, and held homemade signs with the 24 principles from Find Your Way Home written on them.

Each week, we will feature one principle and photo here, reminding us that love and grace are the most powerful forces of individual and social change.

No matter what we are, we are better coming together than living separately.

We come on circuitous paths from prisons,
from the streets,
from churches
because we are tired and want to live in hope.

We come in every color. We come lonely and afraid and do not want to die.

We come because our bodies and spirits are sick
and our teeth are falling out and we know we need help.
