Community Building

"The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you've done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought into other people's lives than you will from the times that you outdid them and defeated them." Rabbi Harold Kushner

We are in the midst of several efforts at community building, here in Lendrum, CoHo and our other circles of influence. While they occasionally come into conflict with other tasks and relationships, they are not interruptions-they are the active work of God as he builds his kingdom.

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable. Kenyan Proverb

Steve Ayers writes, "We're his bride. We're his treasure. We're his church. We're his instruments of peace. We're his voice. We're his revelation. We're the reality of the gospel."

Release yourself fully to the life God has laid before you. God says, "You're It for others to see!"

Demonstrate God's love so dramatically that others can't miss it.

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent. John Donne
