A community is a strong effective form of environment.
Christians in the first four centuries were received into strong communities.
Society is now de-Christianised, so Christian communities are now more necessary.
It is no longer feasible to make society Christian.
A Christian community provides an environment in which strong Christian lives are possible.
In strong communities we will find the strength to influence society.
Small groups are not enough.
They do not have sufficient resources and will eventually stagnate.
A larger community provides more breadth and balance.
Primary relationships are not the only relationships a Christian needs.
A bond can exist between people who don’t know each other well, but who have common goal or ideal.
Family must be strengthened, but a family cannot go it alone.
They need to be part of a larger community to succeed.
