Canadian citizens can no longer afford to carry free-loaders. The raison d’�tre of black churches has not differed from that of churches in any age. As individuals add to the group and agree with the group purpose, the egregore is strengthened. Amani mixed socially with the other prominent local individuals -- the pastors, the directors of the church schools, the doctors and the director from the church hospital, a few local traders, the mayor -- who drank together, shared rides to Kigali, and played on the same volleyball team.

The rise and splintering of the benevolent empire shows how the lingering commonwealth urge of the Revolution and early settlement was first expressed and then resisted by those who realized the implications of having one group, representative or not, speak as if they were the sole guardians of the common good.

One of the beautiful things about the millennials is that they really want to know what older generations think, and how they’ve sorted things through.
