In this episode, Laura and Clark talk about how to build good, healthy community. Good Catholic community forms when you have a goal that’s not “build community” or “form friendships;” when you have a common goal in mind, and work shoulder-to-shoulder with someone towards an exterior goal. In the case of A Simple House, this shared goal is evangelization and service to the poor. By working towards this common goal, missionaries form strong friendships. Clark and Laura discuss some pitfalls that Catholic communities can fall into: co-dependency on community, building your whole identity on community, comparing other members of the community to you, and over-commitment to the mission.
