Growing in Community

Together Yet Separate from Relevant Magazine:
Currently, we could hardly say that man is alone. There are about 6.5 billion people in the world. Nonetheless, walking into that lounge, I discovered that even in the midst of multitudes, it is possible for man to be alone. As long as we are unwilling to connect closely with people, to be vulnerable and transparent, to confess our sins to each other, we will and ought to experience loneliness. We may excuse this loneliness with a “higher spirituality” (i.e. "I don’t need people as long as I have God"), but once more, God did not consider that to be good.
