The Seekers Journal - November 2012


Fall is a time of change. Nature paints a beautiful picture of this concept: the leaves change into vibrant hues before falling on the ground. Their season has come and gone and they leave room for the new buds that will appear in the spring. This changing of seasons can lead us to question what changes we have made this year and what changes we might want to make moving forward.

Join us online in this November edition of Seekers Journal. Discover and learn new ways to connect to your community and how to make it a better, more accessible place for everyone. We hope you'll join us in this journey and share your comments, stories and insights online as we continue to explore and learn together about the power of community.

Some of these conversations have been one-on-one chats over coffee. Others have been medium sized conversations with a group of three-to-six friends, and others still have been a rather chaotic discussions with thirty plus people. Each conversation has had its own unique feel and flavour…
