Scheduling Community

community

At the end of our lives, community will matter most.  Community occurs instinctively through casual conversations, sharing meals or a drink, or participating together in a variety of social activities.  But, community is something we have to plan for also. We have to invest in community, even when its hard and inconvenient. At CIL, scheduled community comes in the form of 242 Groups, Men’s Bible Study and Ladies Bible Studies.

In the devotional Bread for the Journey, Henri Nouwn shares these thoughts on community on his January 23 writing:

. . . community is first of all a quality of the heart. It grows from the spiritual knowledge that we are alive not for ourselves but for one another. Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own (see Philippians 2:4). (p. 24).

2:42 Groups are this Sunday night (January 25) at 6:00 p.m.  Decide now to schedule in the value of  community.
