Even when they disagree about the causes and reasons, many Christians agree that there is a lack of real community in most churches… even good churches. I think that stories and examples can help people understand what it means to live in community with others.

Dan (at “The Ekklesia in Southern Maine“) has written two posts dealing with “Neighbors in Limington”: “The Ice Storm” and “Cancer.” Both stories give a glimpse into community (neighborhood) life.

The church should demonstrate at least this much community… and more.

Thanks for stories and examples, Dan! Keep ’em comin’. (That’s southern for “write some more stuff.”)
