In the previous parts of this series we saw that it is of prime importance for us, as believers, to make sure that the word of God can freely pass between us and all whom we have relationships with. This at any time – in season and out of season. Nothing can be of more importance than to make sure the bridges of relationship grow and are kept clear – whichever community situation we find ourselves in.
In part one of this series, we saw that we are all involved in community somewhere in our lives. There can be great benefit in community situations as we discover the wealth of sharing our lives with fellow members. The flow of wealth in these groups greatly depends on the bridges of relationship……
Experiencing life in community can be a very rewarding time. Let’s have a look at some examples of community situations outside of our normal understanding of city or neighborhood communities.
Community may be one of the following:
- Church group: i.e. prayer group or home cell.
- A sports group or club.
- A business.
- A Marriage or a family are a good example of a ‘micro’ community.
“There’s Gold in them thar Communities”.
Communities form a very important part of our social structure. There are large communities and there are small communities. Apart from Cities and Neighborhoods, there are other types of communities – Cell groups, Prayer groups, sports groups, Companies, Families and Marriages. Yes, even Marriage can be seen as a community!
