A Couple of thoughts on community.

A lot of people say that community builds common values. I think that’s a bunch of hooey.
Common values build community.
During the persecution of Christians in Rome, way back when, those Christians didn’t gather in the catacombs in order to become Christians; they gathered in community and strength because of their common faith in Jesus Christ.
For any community to survive, there has to be a common thread to tie its members together. When the thread is strong, all attempts to sever it only make it stronger.
Find your community; I know where mine are and I sure do feel blessed.
