What a wonderful morning we experienced together last March at the Coyote Center on the campus of Chandler Gilbert Community College, hosted by Mayor Tibshraeny. We heard inspirational messages, heartfelt prayers and honored Roc Arnett for his lifetime of faith in service. Many have shared that “it was the best one yet!” A signature element of the Prayer Breakfast is the common dialogue among the guests, lovingly referred to as “Table Talk.” In 10 minutes we garnered approximately 600 data inputs from over 400 community leaders representing over 14 municipalities.
The three questions during Table Talk were designed to identify existing local and regional collaborations as well as potential needed initiatives. The good news is that there is some partnership existing in at least one of the communities addressing every one of the needed initiatives. The most mentioned; collaborating resources regionally for Mental Health, Substance Abuse, Elderly Care, and Mentoring. It was inspiring to hear Mayors and community leaders express their desire to assist other municipalities and like organizations.
