The Importance of Belonging

I’ve heard it said that having a sense of belonging is one of the most important needs we have as a species. I believe God created us that way. I think most animals have the same need. Most are members of a group or a family.

I thought this article was excellent because it points out that need very powerfully.

Here at Jesus Vegans, we want all the members to feel secure–that they truly belong. And any time we have gatherings here, we want to help people feel welcome, cherished, and a sense of belonging.
