Mark Aston and Jesus' view of community

I go to Christ Community Church in Omaha. This morning Mark Ashton gave an amazing talk about how Jesus intended for us to live in community.  He went on to say that God set up civilization to be organized around relationships. God wants us to be on mission in community.  The problem is that this is very counter cultural in todays society. Here are some interesting facts of some changes over the last decade
Church attendence is down 7%
Having friends over for meals down 35%
Family dinners down 43%
Club meetings down 58%

In addition there are some things in society today that make it very hard to have a relationship

I encourage each of you to stop the isolation now.  God does His highest and redeming work in the context of relationships.
