Living in Community

In a variety of places, I've done a lot of thinking about what it means to live in community.  It might be easier if we only had to sit two by two, making community in pairs.

 Maybe we could fit three people into our community, side by side, on a bench. 

Some days, I think that three is one too many.

Some days, I want to be in community with only myself.

But we are called to greater community.

And from these connections, a community to the even larger world, a way to minister.

And eventually, we will join the largest community of all. 

Let that be the spur that helps us to connect on this side of the grave.
