What's true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That's why the most resilient things in our world - biological life, stock markets, the Internet - are loosely organized.
In our world of rampant 'individualisation', relationships are mixed blessings. They vacillate between a sweet dream and a nightmare, and there is no telling when one turns into the other.
A human is a community of 50 trillion cells, and when you understand that, you realize they're all living entities. They have their own little world down there, and all cells have jobs, and they all live in a community, and they exchange energy like we exchange money, and they have the same requirements in their world that we have in our world.
I feel happy and secure when I'm on my bed with a good book... I forget everything which is terrible in our world.

You either filled a pothole or you didn't. That's what we do every day. And we know how to get this stuff done.
Religion is a complex and often contradictory force in our world. It fosters hope and comfort but also doubt and guilt. It creates both community and exclusion. It brings societies together around shared belief and tears them apart through war. However, what unites the faithful, whatever their religion, is the unshakeable force of generosity.
