Community is about the convergence of our lives in Christ. It’s about God giving us the gift of each other.
When Sartre said, ‘Hell is other people,’ he had it exactly backwards. C. S. Lewis was much more accurate in The Great Divorce when he pictured hell as people moving further and further apart. It’s been said the best description of modern man is a person watching T.V. (or surfing the web) alone. That’s a rather hellish description by biblical standards. The biblical image of the kingdom is most commonly that of face to face fellowship across a table; it is an image of corporate feasting.
