You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there's a fire. Likewise, if your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community will already know it.
- Leonard Ravenhill
You (Millennials) are the generation most afraid of real community because it inevitably limits freedom and choice. Get over your fear.
- Tim Keller
Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.
You cannot sift out the poor from the community. The poor are indispensable to the rich.
- Henry Ward Beecher
The advertisements in a newspaper are more full knowledge in respect to what is going on in a state or community than the editorial columns are.
- Henry Ward Beecher
A man of a right spirit is not a man of narrow and private views, but is greatly interested and concerned for the good of the community, to which he belongs, and particularly of the city or village in which he resides, and for the true welfare of the society of which he is a member.
- Jonathan Edwards
It is theoretically and practically impossible to build any community apart from love and justice. If only one of these two is focused upon, an inevitable extremism and perversion follow.
- Ravi Zacharias
An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
The Christian community is a community of the cross, for it has been brought into being by the cross, and the focus of its worship is the Lamb once slain, now glorified. So the community of the cross is a community of celebration, a eucharistic community, ceaselessly offering to God through Christ the sacrifice of our praise and thanksgiving. The Christian life is an unending festival. And the festival we keep, now that our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed for us, is a joyful celebration of his sacrifice, together with a spiritual feasting upon it.
- John Stott
