Why is connecting so important? Why do people pay such a high price for even a moment of it? Why are people with everything but connection eventually confronted by their own misery? The answer to all these questions is the same: because God exists as a community of connected persons. We were fashioned by a God whose deepest joy is connection with Himself, a God who created us to enjoy the pleasure He enjoys by connecting supremely with Him but also with each other. To experience the joy of connection is life; to not experience it is death to our souls, death to our deepest desires, death to everything that makes us human. – Larry Crabb
