Usually Community, Occasionally Solitary

As our society is slowly but surely moving in precisely the opposite direction, it’s good for disciples to remind themselves that:

The scriptural testimony is that it’s good to have community life as our default (‘it’s not good for people to be alone’), punctuated occasionally by intentionally pursued solitude (‘come away with me for a while’).

Live with people, and get away every now and again.

Living alone, with the occasional public performance, doesn’t seem to be a desirable dynamic for the disciple.
