Chapter 2 from A Community of Grace: An Orthodox Christian Year in Alaska: An Interruption in Life

Are we a real community?

Our author writes, “Real Community…is made up of real people, and it is sometimes messier than… pictures suggest. In a real community, people do not necessarily ‘like’ everyone else. At some times, neighbors are strong and giving; at others, they are weak and needy. The demands for caring for the needy one can grow burdensome.”

I don’t know about you, but I find that one of the ways I really know that I am getting to know someone is when I get to know not only the good part of persons but about parts that annoy me. This is a real sign of growth in relationships, and it is not a bad thing. There is no one who is perfect and as long as we think someone is I am very convinced we don’t really know them, and likely they are not letting us get to know them. As long as we refuse to let others in and as long as we demand perfection from others, we will never be a real community. St. Basil asked, without community whose feet would we wash? Real community can be dirty, but isn’t reality better than a lie? I hope, as one of your priests, that we get to know each other enough that I bug you sometimes, and that you accept me nonetheless. I know Fr. Michael feels the same. I hope we get to know you this well. That’s an invitation!

“Take up your mat and walk.” Our Lord can make us well, and it is always His will that we are able to walk, spiritually speaking. When we unite ourselves to that will we can bring healing to this world. Is He calling you to do so by a vocation to the consecrated monastic life, the diaconate in Christ or the priesthood?
