“The silent churning at the core of our beings is the tormenting need to know and be known, to understand and be understood, to possess and to be possessed, to belong unconditionally and forever without fear of loss, betrayal, or rejection.” 

Dr. Gilbert Bilezikian | Community 101 

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Circles are for everyone 

Circles prevent blind spots 

Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:11-12

Circles prevent isolation  

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. Ecclesiastes 4:12

Attention Possible Visitors. S.O.S. I need your help. I am injured, near death, and too weak to hike out. I am all alone, this is no joke. In the name of God, please remain to save me. I am out collecting berries close by and shall return this evening.

Thank you, Chris McCandless.

Happiness is only real when shared. 

“A circle is like a retirement account. If you wait, it won’t be there for you when you need it. But if you invest now, making it a priority, you can draw on it where you need it. I have never met anyone in authentic community whose broken heart left them broken.” Andy Stanley
