I think this quote by Bonhoffer posted by a friend the other day sums up what I have thought about this week.

The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community, but the person who loves those around them will create community."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I read a similar quote in Michael Frost's book "Exiles." I think it is a profound statement.

Thanks for the is a good reminder of where our focus needs to be concerning people and community.

Oh, goodness, yes. Isn't it amazing how just centreing ourselves 1 degree off God stuffs everything up?

PS: Great article in PDL this month, Barbara :) Sometimes, when I'm feeling 15 years old, I think I would like to start up a "ministry" of going around to church buildings and touching the Lord's anointed ;)
