On Community & Commitment
It’s interesting that, in our culture, the Christian pattern is the dominant one, and yet when we reach out to build a new culture, it’s often the last place that we look. I can readily understand why that’s so, given the experiences “that many of us may have gone through with institutionalized religion. Also, when we’re reaching out to discover our own thresholds and our own new dimensions of growth, it’s good to break away from the familiar. Having done that, it’s useful to come back and take a second or third look at the Christian tradition, and today I will be looking at a particular aspect of it.
