What defines a city? Many cities around the world have always been symbolic of humanity's greatest achievements, whether through remarkable architecture, centres of art, learning, trade, and commerce, and more. It is easy for us to perceive cities as places of human settlement, characterized by complex systems for housing, transportation, industry, and utilities. However, we can all agree that the most vital element of any city is its people—the individuals who call it home. In his poem "The Rock," T.S. Eliot poses a question:

"When the Stranger says: 'What is the meaning of this city? Do you huddle close together because you love each other?' What will you answer? 'We all dwell together to make money from each other?' or 'This is a community?'"

This poem provokes contemplation about the type of community we yearn to belong to. What kind of community are we becoming? It is undeniably true that no community is perfect. We each carry our own brokenness, pain, wounds, pride, insecurities, and jealousy. However, amidst our imperfections, we share a common interest—a genuine concern and acceptance of our neighbors as they are. We aspire to live meaningful lives, extending a helping hand to others.
