Community: "Communication"

Randy Christian

The very words “community” and “communication” tell you they are related.  Communication is the sharing of thoughts/feelings/etc. between two or more people.  For true community to exist, communication must be good.  Perhaps that's why the scripture is so full of guidance on communication.  When we are effective communicators, it not only builds community between us, it helps us to reach out to those who are not part of our community.

Community: "Belonging In Community"

Randy Christian

Human beings are created to live in relationship with others.  We need to be with others—we need to know we belong with others.  But Christians don’t belong in the world—the very word translated “church” in the New Testament means “the called out”.  So who do we belong with and to?  And knowing we belong, how do we related to those who feel alienated from others in the middle of millions of people?
