“Clinging to each other in a fraternal way, creating hospitable homes, is the greatest help that Christians can offer to everyone to foster the reawakening of an interest in family.” (Carron, Disarming Beauty)
This is something that is really important to me. As people, we crave community. I am a very strong believer in spending time with the people that help us encounter reality. We are very fortunate to live in an area where we have people wh obuild us up and love.
We are also very lucky to have all decided this community was very important, and we make the time to see each other regularly. Dinner at each other’s houses. Morning mass. Walks and book clubs. Simple things that don’t take too much time, but which totally strengthen the bonds of friendship.
How do you build community in your life?
