In order to feel a sense of community with an individual or a group, I don't need complete simpatico. One or two touch-points in common is enough. We don't need to be best buddies or agree on everything to form community. Isn't that good news? Like most people, I think, I'm a part of groups and circles, some that overlap, that range from huge and filled with many people I've yet to meet to small, intimate organizations.
And this is a super-shortie post because community includes family (while family doesn't necessarily include community) and today is the day we move our son into his college apartment! For his senior year! How in the heck did that happen...
