I was raised in a Christian community living environment and it planted seeds inside me that I just can't seem to shake. God eventually had to take me out of the institutional church for those seeds to grow, and out there in the wilderness I learned that God himself was a community of love. Now I get to practice community inside the traditional church again.
And why does this excite me? Because God invites all of us to experience his love, and to extend the community of his presence to all those around us. Strap yourself in for a breathtaking view of love and friendship and shared life.
