This new community is being formed using the arts of community organizing. This comes out of a tradition of people coming to know their own stories, growing in relationship with one another through those stories, discerning how those relationships can be powerful together, and acting out of that power to make impact for the sake of the common good. Got that?
And in a community that dwells in the Spirit, that means we celebrate, study, pray, discern, grieve and eat together all along the way. We always start with belonging, but when we realize we belong to one another and to God, we also realize we belong to our neighbor, and they to us. Out of that new knowing, we boldly walk and act together toward a new reality.
