As we begin Community Groups this week, I can’t help but think of a great quote by Randy Frazee from his book, The Connecting Church, about our longing for community.
“For most of the last decade of the twentieth century, two television shows, Seinfeld and Friends, consistently received the top awards from the People’s Choice Awards…What both shows have in common is a small group of friends that go in and out of each other’s lives and apartments spontaneously more times in a half hour than most ‘real’ Americans experience in a year. Seinfeld even promoted itself as a show ‘about nothing.’ Why would busy Americans watch a show about nothing? Because it wasn’t about nothing—it was about a group of great friends spending lots of spontaneous time together, talking about everyday stuff and loving every minute of it.”
I can’t promise that being involved in a Community Group guarantees this level of interaction, but it’s at least a step in the right direction.
