Being a part of community

We do not experience all that God has for us apart from being involved with others The changes that God does in us, along with the gifts that God demonstrates through us, happen as we are intentionally around people. We were never intended to live a long term monastic and isolated life, but one in community with other people, using the freedom we have received to serve one another. And as we serve and learn from one another, we are changed.
