Americans are among the loneliest people in the world. We are a culture craving meaningful relationship yet in the midst of our crowded existence and over-committed schedules, many of us are living lonely lives. We live, work, and play in a sea of humanity, but we end up missing out on the benefits of consistent, meaningful relationships. We long to love and be loved. To know and be known.
That may be why we are seeing a resurgence in local communities and why things like farmer's markets and the local bookstore are growing in popularity. We all want places to belong, to feel at home. We all want to live in dynamic and vibrant communities and to have real and authentic friendships. But where do we begin?
This Sunday we'll be talking about why authentic community is so essential to growing in our faith and thriving in life. Historically, revival always happens in community. Take some time to read Acts 2:14-21, 42-47 to see a compelling portrait of authentic biblical community.
