The Greatest Need In Modern Civilization

April 20, 2016

“The crisis of care in modern culture, especially in the Western church, will not be resolved by training more therapists….It will be worsened by moralists who never reach deeply into the hearts of people in their efforts to impose their standards of behavior on others, even when those standards are biblical.

The greatest need in modern civilization is the development of communities—true communities where the heart of God is home, where the humble and wise learn to shepherd those on the path behind them, where trusting strugglers lock arms with others as together they journey on.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Introduction pg xvi-xvii

Questions for Reflection:
• What would community look like for a group of people who are convinced that “the heart of God is home”?
• In your sphere of relationships, with whom has God given you the opportunity to “lock arms” and to companion on a journey marked by humility and wisdom?
