From the Blog
Together

This week we have a message from board member and SCS parent Joe Filbrun.

"I was born into a family that belonged to a community I like to refer to as “almost Amish.” While our community didn’t reject all modern technology, as most truly Amish communities do, there were strict limits. We had electricity, appliances, power tools, and cars, but radios and televisions were seen as destructive to the community and, so, were not allowed. Having roots in the “radical reformation” of the 16th and 17th centuries in southern Germany, this was a community that was forged in persecution, including martyrdom, at the hands of both the Protestants and Roman Catholics. For all of its flaws, neuroses, and failures, this was a community that understood the importance of taking care of each other, and found deep joy in the simplicity of hard work, shared meals, and the harmonization of human voices. Whenever there was a need, the community came together."
