The DNA of a Healthy Church Part 4: The Church is a Community

This past weekend we discussed the idea of community. We defined community as "a unified body of individuals: a group of people with a common characteristic or interest [Christ] living together within a larger society."

Real community is what the world is craving for today: that place where you can be real and authentic, where you can let people see the real you. We discussed the three aspects of community which were authenticity, communication, and encouragement. Community is the antidote for loneliness and can be found in a healthy church.

What do you find is the problem with finding community? What is it that keeps you from entering into community with other people?
