We're often communicating poorly and fighting for scarce resources at work. Sometimes we're experiencing racial divisions, sexual harassment or other toxic office cultures.

Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.

"Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.  All things break.  All things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go.  Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. 

The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you."
