A Catch 22 With Community

What is one to do when they feel its good and right to a more social/communal gospel such as living in close quarters, same neighbourhood, same house as others who call themselves Christians but whenever the idea is brought up they are usually told to “go live out your convictions on your own.” Do some end up leaving purely out of frustration that no one wants to come along with them on a new and exciting journey? Does the hope and longing for community, if pushed to hard, eventually leave someone more alone? Are they forced to go somewhere where this way of life can be had or are they to stick it out, be patient and continue to press onward? What happens when what you need to do is to be in community but no one wants to join? Aren’t you kind of stuck?

Just some questions I’ve been pondering.
