From Nick Fiedler’s The Hopeful Skeptic

He said the only thing that kept his thoughts on God positive (after the accident) was that, immediately, calls and e-mails came in from all over… and they were full of thoughts of love and promises of continual prayer. I think what he felt was a community that Jesus had established 2000 years ago.

I had to leave my community at at time when I desperately need it.

I struggle with resentment and grief over this loss. Although my community’s response was good immediately, it has understandably trickled away to nothing. Now we are alone.
There are a few friends who remain part of my life, but it is not the same as being part of a community.
