In Disney’s cartoon Aladdin, we see the young “street rat” turn to Princess Jasmine on two occasions throughout the movie, asking her, “Do you trust me?” In both instances there is no reason for the princess to trust Aladdin, and yet she gives him her hand and goes with him each time. Outside of Disney cartoons and Hollywood movies, concepts of trust are much more complex. We will reflect together on what trust means, how we build trust, and how trusting one another is central to creating healthy faith communities.
