“The best test...is this: Do those served grow as persons?
Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to
become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged of society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived?" Robert Greenleaf
"...this is a book that addresses head-on a terrible rift in our society: our culture is broken and needs care to be restored to wholeness."
"What I call Culture Care is a generative approach to culture that brings bouquets of flowers into a culture bereft of beauty."
From Culture Care, by Makoto Fujimura

A powerful book on restoring our broken culture by a return to Beauty.
The proper goal of leadership should be to promote principle-centered living, greater human flourishing, and care for creation.
My mission is to help foster a culture of justice, reconciliation, redemption, forgiveness, and beauty.

I believe we have all been created in the image of God, and as such, each person has intrinsic worth and human rights.
We each have a combination of personality, abilities, and place in a social field that no others possess. Thus, each has a role and purpose that needs to be discovered.

We live in a world that scars us spiritually, psychologically, and physically, often preventing us from fulfilling our purpose.
Institutions of all kinds, political, economic, social, and religious, rightfully exist to help restore proper balance and order.
All of us have the potential to be catalysts to help bring healing to individuals, the culture in which we live, and society.
Let's all be positive change agents in our spheres of influence, to help move our culture to one of justice, reconciliation, redemption, forgiveness, and beauty.
