What is the purpose of community, and why does it matter?
Questions: Why do you write/blog? What helps you to continue when you've lost inspiration?
"Community for the sake of community is fine, but there should be something more to it. There should be a 'why?' that guides our interactions. We're here for more than just ourselves. True community, the kind that creates conversations and stirs hearts, is community on purpose. It's community that exists with a very real sense of 'why?', and one that challenges one another to live outside of ourselves. To live for something that is only possible when we do life together. True community changes things. It impacts communities and it challenges the status quo. We need to stop asking simply 'what is community?' and start asking 'why is community?'" - Jonathan Zoeteman
How have you been impacted by being in true community lately?
