Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters.

Shannon Wolf published a piece on the blog for the Association of Christian Counselors about her take on a possible foundational cause of the tragedy that took place in Newtown, CT. She makes a good case for the shift from community to isolation as being a cause.

These sentences really caught my attention:

Today, we are faced with the consequences of the breakdown of the community. Community is now a location and not an activity.

Do you agree with her? Has community ever been an activity for you? Is it now? What difference does it make? Do you, too, see the lack of community as related to increased violence? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
