All of us long for community and a sense of togetherness. At the same time, the values our culture prizes most teach, reinforce, celebrate, and undermine the very thing we want. Most people are lonely and relationally unfulfilled. This is not how God intended life to be. In the last message, we learned that the birth of the church launched a new community in which individuals shared their life together at every level--spiritually, relationally, and economically.
