What Does Community Mean To You?

I’m at fault in this.
In the Christian leadership world we tend to hijack the word community to somehow only relate it to Sundays or small groups.
That sucks.
Cause that would mean community is not the 99.999% of other amazing things in this world.
So this is a vague question.
But I think it’s vagueness give room to answer.

Lose your Christianese for a minute.
The word community to me looks like…

People walking their dogs by your house and throwing your paper closer to your door.
Your local barista starting your drink when they see you in the parking lot.
When you hear Mrs. Ripleys dinner bell from down the street all the kids sprint from the creek back home.

What does community mean to you?
