5 minute friday ~ community

So let’s spend our five minutes of writing today, sharing about community. Fight it, love it, hate it, hurt or healed by it, we were certainly built for it.

Set a timer and just write. Don’t worry about making it just right or not.

Go all in with your words.

Are you ready?

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

Community…

start:
Community ~ A group of interacting people, living in some proximity (i.e., in space, time, or relationship). Community usually refers to a social unit larger than a household that shares common values and has social cohesion. Since the advent of the Internet, the concept of community has less geographical limitation, as people can now gather virtually in an online community and share common interests regardless of physical location.
 

This week when I think of community, I’m reminded of Lori, and how last week she told us of her trip to Africa. And this week many in her community are sending her packages of little pockets and little treasures. We all wanted to share in her gift of sharing with those she will meet. I love the quote she posted on her blog.

without the community, the individual is left without a place where he can contribute. the community is that grounding place where people come and share their gifts and receive them from others. ~ sobonfu some
