I’ve been re-reading Houses that Change the World by Wolfgang Simson as I’ve been looking for more clarity going forward in life.
Here’s a quote in the book by Art Katz, a Messianic Jew, where he speaks of true community
Community life pulverizes your old ego in the power of the Spirit of God, and rescues you from just living a miserable private life, where after loving each other during a one-hour worship service a week we rush home to water our flowers, sit on our porch, eat our individual meals and wash our car. We need to start to function as part of the fellowship of the redeemed. As the redeemed, we do not go home after a service, we are at home with each other.
Update: You can download the entire book legitimately here for free. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
