Community is not something you find; it’s something you build. (James Emory White, pastor and author)

White continues: “Community is not something discovered; it is something forged . . . all relationships of worth are products of labor.” Finding the right partner, the right job, or neighborhood is often our goal, but to have any sense of belonging requires effort and perseverance. Finding friends is one thing, molding a community of mutual benefit is another.

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14).
