 Those who feel rejected by society have lessons to teach us about helplessness and uncertainty.

Alec will share his experience of being transformed while living and working as a caretaker at an interfaith community for people with intellectual disabilities.

Whether struggling with helplessness caused by their physical and intellectual limitations or abandonment from families and difficulty trusting in the constancy of people’s love, these housemates came to peace with it all and taught profound lessons.
