Individualists who resist connecting with spiritual communities also forget that these communities have needs! The Body of Christ needs members with gifts and passions. When we withdraw, we miss the chance to bless others, to give our particular gifts to the whole. Who knows, in advance, how God will use them to make a church stronger and to enhance the faith of others? Not only do you need the church—the church needs you.
