I have been apart of The Peony Project for just a smidgen amount of time but I already loved every minute of it so far! Today is the first of a monthly Link Up and the prompt is: Community. Disclaimer: Not the TV show, Community.
I recently wrote about Community from a Biblical stand point. My Pastor had preached on Community and it really resonated with me. So - go read that if you just can't get enough of thoughts on Community.
Here's the thing. I love Community. I crave Community. I just always want to be in Community. I have a really hard time watching TV or movies with people because I would rather get-to-freakin'-know-ya! (that's a thing - I swear) I want to know your hopes, dreams, fears, strengths, funny, stories etc! I want to know it all. So instead I looove to play BOARD GAMES. mmhmm - yes. oh and I really love Catch Phrase!
The good news is: I have community!
Blogging: I love blogging because I have found such an encouraging community - people are very positive and kind. I have loved being apart of this!
Church: I love my church because there is such a great community of people that are ready and willing to meet each others needs and be a friend if they need it.
Family: I just have the best family, I also married into the best family. I know I am so lucky a lot of people do not have as good of a relationship with their families. My family - even extended to my cousins - is super close. We don't hang out all the time, but when we do get together it is like nothing ever changed. We all laugh and (play board games!)
Friends: I love my friends - I have amazing friends.
Community, to me, is vital. I don't know if that is dramatic. But I really believe it is. Listen, folks, God in His very nature is Communal. He is 3 in 1. The Trinity. That is built in Community.
So those are my thoughts. Now I want to know your thoughts. Does Community mean as much to you as it does to me? Do you belong to a great Community???
