Looking for Community


“I don’t look for community. My responsibility is to be community to those whom God brings across my path.” – Sherwood Lingenfelter

At the most recent meeting of the CRM-US Board in San Francisco, I shared dinner across a platter of Ethiopian food with Sherwood Lingenfelter, the provost at Fuller Seminary whose wife, Judy, serves on our board.

We got into a discussion about “community” and because Sherwood has a book coming out soon on the topic, I was fascinated by his observations. This was one of the notable take-away lines that doesn’t need any commentary.
