"Christianity means community through Jesus Christ and in Jesus Christ. No Christian community is more or less than this. Whether it be a brief, single encounter or the daily fellowship of years, Christian community is only this. We belong to one another only through and in Jesus Christ."
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
I've been meaning to pick this book back up so I did and we discussed these ideas with OCC yesterday in great depth and practicality. Community is not a catch phrase for me anymore, I am living in its daily reality. It is sometimes painful, but it is also the well that I drink from often. I don't go to Church, I belong to a tribe of Christ followers. This brings definition to my life.
