>Community and Church

>St Katherine's Church, Loversall. view of Alta...Image via WikipediaSomewhere in my reading the last couple of days, I came across a Stanley Hauerwas quote.  It went something like this….

I don’t like the word “community” for a church.  “Community” seems to imply that we like each other.  But a “Church” isn’t a place where people “like” each other.  It’s a place where people love each other, whether or not they love them.

This has had me thinking.
