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 we’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: “Our 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.”
