We joined four friends this morning at the Quaker meeting house for a discussion on the idea of ‘community’. As usual, many thoughtful comments were shared. We talked about a community as a ‘network’, in which every word and action affects the ‘net’ in some way, and several of us spoke of the importance of everyone being open in a community, so that the community itself can remain open and receptive. One person spoke of his hometown, which he recalled as being a wonderfully friendly and supportive community, but which now, when he visited, seemed almost bereft of any true community spirit. It struck me, as we talked in a small circle, that we five were a comfortable and caring community in that quiet room in the meeting house.
