Kim Hewson: We want to be active in the place where our feet are walking. We need to listen more about what’s happening in terms of this mitigation and development, and I don’t think that people have really been that aware. So that means that certain leaders at our church, yours truly included, are going to have to be more involved in that if we do want to have a voice in this. And I just say that because I think that it would benefit all people involved to see that type of collaboration occur. But most importantly, for the people of Providence. And as we are in Providence, we want to be for Providence. And I’m encouraged by this conversation that we can do that.
