While I heartily agree that we need to reach out in love and include others, I rarely read anything about the effort that needs to take place on the part of the person who feels "left out." Don't we each have accountability for our own happiness---for reaching out ourselves instead of always expecting others to continuously draw us in? I have heard all too often the complaint that: "The ward just isn't friendly," or "No one spoke to me today." The obvious question is: "Did YOU speak to them?" Did YOU look around for someone who might need YOUR fellowship?" Seems to me this is a two-way street. If you feel you don't belong, maybe it's time to stop thinking about yourself and reach out to others.

You can make all the laws or statements you want to help the marginalized but what it really comes down to is the individual - we each have to love our brothers and sisters as God does - and you can't make that a law. Lets all step up and truly be a child of God and love our brothers and sisters as we love ourselves and Him.
