Our Collective Voice
Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
This quote came to mind as I reflected on why I am a member of NACAR. I want to be part of something that is larger … something that challenges, stimulates, and supports my growth as a covenant companion (associate). I want to be a part of this growing movement of associates across North America. I want to be part of a movement that is making a difference in the lives of so many people.
Belonging to NACAR is an integral part of my commitment to the Associate-Religious relationship. Together, our collective membership is a powerful voice in raising the profile of this form of belonging to religious communities, as well as raising awareness of this movement within the church of the people of God. NACAR provides opportunities to access a variety of ideas, opinions, and ways of forming, nurturing, and evolving the associate way of life. Through our e-newsletter The Associate, scholarly articles on the website, webinars, retreats, and workshops, NACAR continuously seeks to add value for our members.
