Webster defines community:
- a group of people who reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.
- a locality inhabited by such a group
- a social, religious, or occupational group sharing common characteristics or interests
- the public
But, we’re going to look deeper.
Community is so much more than a group of like minded people who dwell in a specific region.
It’s about connection. Taking risks and getting to know your neighbors. Building intentional relationships. Reaching out. It’s about how we do life together. Knowing that you belong – that you are not anonymous or alone. No matter your background or economic status.
