In the beginning… well, actually even before the beginning of the official Cabarrus Dream Center, Cabarrus Health Alliance was providing Dental Services to the people in our community in the space that is now deemed the Cabarrus Dream Center.
For those of you who may be reading from a different community, Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA) is the leading Public Health Authority in our county. They are highly esteemed in our community, and the vast majority of the population here trusts CHA with their life… both figuratively and literally!
It is quite an interesting cultural moment to live in. Really, the entire world is living in some sort of perpetual and chaotic cycle of life right now. With the continuation of rising tensions across generally all facets of society, one overwhelming concern (that perhaps does not receive enough attention, if any at all) is for those in need.
Where are the poor in all of this?
Who is advocating for them?
Are we doing our part to help the poor?
Do we give voice to the marginalized, or do we try to speak for them on our own?
At this point, it has been some time since the birthing of what is now called the Cabarrus Dream Center. Two or three years to be exact. But today was, what seemed to be, a releasing of sorts into the future of how people can be helped spiritually and physically in our community.
So what is next?
It is the end of this part, but it is only the beginning of the next part.
What will God do next?
