Last week, Jamie from “A Living Alternative: Our Missional Pilgrimage” tweeted several thoughts on community. He listed the thoughts and explanations in a post called “Tweets on Community“. What do you think:
- True community is found when we explore the right questions, not when we rally around required facts. This isnâ€™t a denial of absolute truth.
- Leaders should create space, raise the question and facilitate conversation. Out of this service, community is nurtured.
- We must check our impulse to comfort, answer or fix. Often it is motivated by our own discomfort, not love or compassion.
- The threat to true community is not difference of belief or even conflict. It is shallow, lip-service commitment.
Jamie explains his thoughts briefly in the blog post above. I think Jamie’s thoughts could be very helpful to people trying to live in community in Christ with others.
