Whether you worship in a church, synagogue, mosque, from the comfort of your home, or simply by being in nature, there are common threads that unite people of faith. Here are a few of them.

A desire to do good

Good people bring out the good in people

A sense of duty to reach out

You have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others

A realistic view that life isn’t easy or fair, but it is still meaningful

I'm stronger because of my hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because of my sad experiences

The hope to get through times of difficulty or uncertainty

It's gonna get harder before it gets easier. But it will get better, you just gotta make it through the hard stuff first

An ability to find the positives in life

Every day may not be good ... but there is something good in every day
