If [Sunday service] is the main way you experience [your church], you are not actually in a community. You’re really in an aggregation. And as a result, by in large, you may be inspired and feel better, but not actually get better.

It’s in community that you get better. Real life is meeting.

You essentially become like your primary social community… that’s primarily what forms you and therefore there is no supernatural character change without deep involvement in community.

Tim Keller (A Counter Culture of Grace, 11:00-13:00)

Excellent sermon on what it means to be in community. We are called to be in a Christian community, but too often we settle for so much less (which is to our convenience and comfort, but also to our detriment).
