I was thinking about the word community as it relates to church life. Being in and feeling a part of a community is an essential part of what makes Church life so meaningful. Koinonia is the Greek word for community. When the Church speaks of community, it is talking about an experience that exhibits an embodiment… proof of kinship. A place of belonging. Being in community is about connections and contributing. As individuals collaborate to shape the framework of relationships through story, context, and circumstances, true community forms.
