This book has made a deep and lasting impression on me. I know some of the folks involved in the story and initially that captured my attention and imagination. However, my feelings have gone beyond personal involvement. I highly recommend this book to those interested in social justice and those seeking ways to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

I loved the way Jack Kern's book Weavers of Hope - Una Familia Humana provided me a moving account of what a community of people who have compassion can do for the marginalized of our world. In 2002 Jack and his group in Austin, Texas completed a program called JustFaith. The program instilled in them a desire to live social justice but the big question for them was what, as a community, should we do next? They were made aware of a Mexican village, Villa Garcia, which is located near the east coast of the Gulf of Mexico and south of Zacatecas. The village is a twelve hour drive from Austin. The immediate need of the villagers was help to repair the damage caused to their homes and lives by a flood. With keen insight into the human condition, Jack explains how this immediate need developed into long term kinship.

In 2003, Jack and his JustFaith group named their effort Weavers of Hope because the village has a rich tradition of weaving cloth which Jack's JustFaith community is working to revitalize. Another form of help Jack and his JustFaith group offered was scholarships for some of the villagers' children to continue their education.

Through his book, Jack introduces readers to the people who dedicated their lives to help the people of Villa Garcia, both people who lived in Austin and in Villa Garcia. The noble quality all these people share is the hope for Villa Garcia and our world.

I found the book a moving account of a community of privilege reaching out to help a community in need. But more importantly, the book gives an inside look at the change wrought in the people who didn't let borders, both in their own lives and geographically, stop them from giving the gift of human compassion.

This is the most powerful book I've ever read, and I read a lot. It is a call to action that is possible for many who look to make a difference in this world of ours. Jack Kern has a wonderful gift for expressing the essence of culture, spirituality, and the blessings to so many people on both sides of the border.
