Habakkuk 3:17-19 NKJV
Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls— Yet, I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you; plans to give you hope and a future. I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born. Do not fear for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Surely, I will help you. I will upload you with my righteous hand. No weapon formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that will come against you--in judgment, you will condemn... When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you; when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze; for I AM the Lord Your God, the Holy One of Israel -- your Savior. -- (Jeremiah 29:11, Isaiah 66:9, Isaiah 41.10, Isaiah 54:17, Isaiah 43:2-3)

We are constantly moving in the direction of serving God and blessings others.
We believe in Jesus Christ, of course, and in helping others.
Yes, it takes a village. If we start doing good things in our communities, that can translate into doing things in our city, then our state, and then impacting a nation.
