The Natural Order of Things

by Rev. Bobby

"Birds of a feather flock together." We have all heard this quote at some time or another in our life. We usually relate to the quote in terms of friends or some other collection of people that hang out or meet up regularly. The Boy Scouts, Baseball Teams, and just the general crew I spent time with could be a representation of said quote. We could extrapolate the concept behind this quote and add more people with similar interests and foundational beliefs. We would now have a community that is a microcosm of society. Within the community where people and their common interests take precedence, the collection of people and families establish rules and regulations that create a foundation to coexist and work with one another for the community's well-being.

The land on which this community is built becomes a common responsibility for all that reside within. Maintaining the social structure and all that makes it up becomes a focal point for the community's well-being and the individuals who make up the community. Safety, infrastructure, schools, businesses, hospitals, and places where one can shop and be entertained are necessary for a healthy community to thrive and survive. It is also essential to build and establish a consciousness, perspective, and way of life complete with goals the community wants first to achieve and second represent. The unified body of these individuals must form and develop an identity for the community that all agree to and adhere to.

It is natural for those with like minds and morals to want to assemble and form formal groups with those with these things in common. In the Spiritually focused cross-section of society, these groups of believers and principled followers include communities. They are the epitome of a group, a community linked by common interests. The focus that runs common in these types of communities is service for the well-being of others. Yes, spiritual growth and development are some objectives to be achieved, and what better way to achieve them than through service.

Wow, a service community - a community that serves others and itself. The makings and ingredients for a healthy society exist, which begs the question, "I wonder what is not working correctly?"Let's rise higher, scratch the "What's not working "question, and focus on the answer. Let us focus on what it will take to straighten things out. The answer: Community. Aggregate Collections of People with forward-moving, positive ideas, inclusion, and the willingness to be in service to one another. Sounds good, huh? That's because it is good. But sometimes, selling this concept can be challenging.

I'm a GOOD Salesman; I employed this concept so my family could eat. But even with this uber-good concept of community in which all within it thrive, selling it as a healthy way of life doesn't always go over so well with people. People remain the variable that can go off-kilter at any time.

That being said, it still does not interfere with the mission. We have the answer; it's a wee bit tricky to implement. But, with the full force of the community in which we reside, the community that has already bought in, we will continue until we can visibly see the manifestation of the victory that already belongs to Our Community. It's the Natural Order of Things. I rest my case.
