I may have mentioned this quote before… I refer to it frequently. The idea of this quote is grounded in Scripture and is foundational to our hub community at Brentview. The question we’re trying to address is "In the hectic routine of our lives (school, work, etc), how can we begin to discover true community with one another?" The hub is not the end of community, but, we hope, the beginning connection point for many, many people to find the fellowship that is integral to God’s people.
"There can be no maturity in the spiritual life, no obedience in following Jesus, no wholeness in the Christian life apart from an immersion and embrace of community. I am not myself by myself. Community, not the highly vaunted individualism of our culture, is the setting in which Christ is at play."
– Eugene Peterson, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, 226.
