We are created for and called to community. Can you think of anyone who would rather face injustice on his or her own? We may not always like the particular company we have, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want community; it just means we want better or more suitable company. It’s true that some of us are more independent by temperament, at least when things are going well, but when trials and challenges loom we often remember the value of being more interdependent. In different ways and at varying levels we all long for people who understand and care about us, who share our burdens and celebrate our joys, and who will stand with us even when things get hard or we get messy. We all long to belong.
