This book helped me understand who is my neighbor. Great churches have teams of players that know each others space andbuld on their abilities. It is best not to search for direct answers to belong. Better develope a framework of words that help people to feel comfortable. One size does not fill all.

Myers further argues that churches today need to be sensitive to take advantage of creating meaningful "front porch" experiences (within the church) if they are to be influential in "inviting" and securing prospects and retaining tenured membership. It all goes back to community.
