Small Communities that Nurture One’s Spirit
Diperbarui: 25 Des 2019
There is a serious need for small communities that care for one’s spirit. Communities that are not constantly trying to change you, rather communities that listen and nurture one’s spirit. Communities were one can find peace and rest for one’s spirit in the midst of a turbulent world. Such communities are difficult, even impossible to find unless one forms such a community with a group of like-minded people who are willing to journey together for a period of time. Such communities must establish ground rules that guard and protect one’s spirit and prevent individual members going on their own ego trip. Even the church community largely fails in nurturing one’s spirit partly because it is too big for this kind of work to happen, also the church has too many agendas that conflict with and crush one’s spirit. Such communities must be based upon a commitment of trust if they are to participate with God and one another in renewing, caring for and nurturing one’s spirit.
