CULTIVATING COMMUNITY

Prayer, Service, Creativity, Movement, and Generosity

Cultivating community is a slow and intentional work that takes time, courage, and creativity. Chronic Joy’s unique prompts invite you to take the first brave steps on a brand new journey.

…so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:5

We are created for community, first with God then with one another.

Jesus said, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and will all your soul and with al your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39

 

Community in a 37-word nutshell.

 

Cultivating is a slow and intentional work. Just as there is no shortcut from seed planting to harvest, there is no quick method of learning to love one another.

 

Cultivating community takes prayer, time, courage, and creativity.
