Larry Crabb on Community {18/31 Niches}

“Everything in spiritual community is reversed from the world’s order. It is our weakness, not our competence, that moves others; our sorrows, not our blessings, that break down the barriers of fear and shame that keep us apart; our admitted failures, not our paraded successes, that bind us together in hope. ”

“Brokenness is the realization that life is too much for us, not just because there is too much pain but also because weโ€™re too selfish. Brokenness is realizing He is all we have. Hope is realizing He is all we need. Joy is realizing He is all we want. Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote: โ€œOur community with one another consists solely in what Christ has done to both of us”

“Members of a spiritual community look at each other with the conviction that God has placed something terrific in every member.”
