Five Minutes of Community

Joining up with Five Minute Friday again – woo hoo!  Today’s word – Community.

Community – all sorts of things.  We have community groups at church, we live in a community, there is community when all are gathered around a meal, enjoying laughter and great food.  What is the same element in all?  Relationships.

Community is built for relationships to thrive, or are relationships built so community can thrive?  Can you have a community of folks without relationships?  Maybe – but I’d just call that a gathering and not a community.  Can you have relationships without being in community?  Sure, but if it were just you and another person having a deep down conversation and sharing life together every single day without interacting with any other folks…..that relationship might be strained a bit.  One person wasn’t meant to fulfill our need for community with others.

Community – it is wonderful, life changing, and fulfilling when done well.

  1. Yes, so true:”Community – it is wonderful, life changing, and fulfilling when done well.” Even when it is not done well, God always redeems somehow…Nice to meet you, Chris…blessings 🙂

  2. You are so right, “one person wasn’t meant to fulfill oru need for community with others.” I’m an introvert and can go days without interacting with others. But that is no way to live, God wants us to interact right there in the place He has called us.

    God bless you and have a wonderful weekend!
