The Growing Community

All of us are members of several communities, some by choice and others by default. Neighborhoods, school, work, any number of clubs or organizations—all of which function in basically the same way. The members of a community share some common identity or purpose that unifies the group as a whole. Christians thrive on this idea of community, and in fact believe that we are a part of the most extensive, formative, and important community in existence: the Church.
