I feel that a community is somewhere people live in body, mind and/or spirit. We are therefore part of a lot of different communities.
For example, Steve and I live in Rosebud and consider that the Mornington Peninsula is our local community. We enjoy the area for the scenery, the amenities and the events that we participate in. This is where we have most physical day to day contact with people.
We also ‘live’ online so we are a part of a few different online communities usually called forums. We share thoughts and ideas within the forums and so feel a part of the communities.
Spritiual communities are, to me, the sharing of beliefs with others and these others can be anywhere and may not necessarily be people that I have met online or offline, but I feel a sense of community with them.
What are your thoughts on communities?
