growing community through connections

Today I read an awesome article, "We are all interwoven," at Diana Holvik's blog, Under the Linden Tree. 

In this article, Diana powerfully weaves in stories to describe community and connections.  As I commented, we often feel that we are surrounded by strangers, and feel so alone. And yet if we are willing to smile, say a friendly hello, and strike up a conversation rich in story, we so often find that the one who a moment ago was a stranger has suddenly turned out to be family and/or friend, by simple connection.

There is much conversation in blogs about church as community, in which people wonder aloud how we find those who, like us, are looking for church as relationship and community.  If you've been wondering that, read Diana's blog posting

What do you think about what she describes?
