Christ had community with the disciples. The disciples had community with Christ. In this automated, high tech, face paced world I could find myself without community. When do you know you need it? When life happens and you find that you can't think of anyone to come to your side or rescue. Do you have community? Can you name a handful of friends that you know would come to your aid? Hypothetically, your husband goes to the ER. Do you have friends that your kids could do some home jumping from one to another till you could comfortably leave your husband's side or bring him home? I think it's critical to have community and yes, it requires time,work, and a lot of effort. Frankly, I need to know I have someone to lean on here and now because it is guaranteed that life will happen.
