Belonging in Community


To belong in a community is to be at once an individual and a part of a group bigger than oneself. It is to be in a position of strength and vulnerability, comfort and danger. As one writer puts it, “Community requires of us a giving up….If we have nothing to give up, we cannot take in.”

 

I agree with the above statement completely.

It is from the service description blurb for this Sunday at the UU of the South Hills.
