Pastor's View: A great place to live, work and play ... together!

We are a Community – a group of people with common interests, interacting in a common location. We have joint participation and joint ownership. We have common goods, activities, character and interests. We might call ourselves collectively the Upper Clearwater Community. When we focus on what we have in common and how we are alike and how we can capitalize on the common unity we have … life gets better.

His questions begin with a priest, then with long relationships broken, then with a battle not only for his life, his village, and everything he holds dear, but also for his soul and the souls of all under his rule.
