Fellowship and Community

Community refers to a group of people joined by common experiences. Fellowship occurs between people who share a common goal or understanding through providing mutual support and enjoyment of one another’s company. These terms have sometimes been used in strict contexts within religious and spiritual settings, but their use has expanded and overlapped to include all sorts of groupings. Though they take care, energy, and intention to build and maintain, fellowship and community provide important opportunities to satisfy the need to belong and be accepted, and for us to practice welcoming and accepting others in turn.
