I think only now I am finally understanding it, how it works, how it doesn’t.
We can strive so hard for it and still not “get” it. At least that’s what I have witnessed a lot.
I think true community can only be lived out among those who share the same faith family-meaning local church
Sure there can be aspects of “community” outside of church like on the seminary campus we live on.
But without being committed and faithful to a local church, we can’t really understand the depth and beauty of it.
For the last several months now we have gone on Monday nights to our home group from church where we laugh, cry, share, encourage, admonish…now I think I get it.
Commitment breeds community…even among those who don’t seem to “fit” together.
I think this is what Jesus intended for His most treasured Bride.
I plan to learn more about growing in community for the sake of the Bride of Christ.
