On community

A remarkable feeling came upon me just now. We were gathered in usual room for sharing. I looked about, and for a moment, it felt as if we could have all been strangers to one another – and what were we doing, sharing with these complete strangers the things that brew at the bottom of our heart, things that ought to kept for only ears of the most trusted? It sometimes seem such a miracle, and blessing, that this community has been forged; that a quiet intimacy flows through the gathering, such that we will know to not be afraid in revealing our troubles, but letting them float to the surface and be cast away by the collected strength of the community.
