Community: A place where you all care about each other; with a common goal of doing what is best for the community as a whole; which would mean that the idea of community is seen not only as virtuous, but also as necessary for sharing life together.
It would also flow from this thought that preserving the shared life of those living in community would be of great benefit to the whole world.
It may start out with only a few and take patience and perseverance to achieve, but the possibilities are endless.
First I believe it starts with God, who by his very nature is communal and then it flows through Jesus and by the Holy Spirit it flows through us.
As people created in the image of God we are created for community and through God’s plan, he chose the church to show the world the importance of living in and as community; it is to be a place that embodies the possibilities of a commonly shared life.
It is something that takes time effort and energy, which we trust God to provide as we faithfully, obediently and patiently follow his ways.
At the core of community is its heart of …giving –
Seeking, working and praying for peace in this place where God has sent us.
