Weekly Questions: We Say We Believe in Community, But…

I was recently reminded from a few conversations that true community is messy.  We want people to be close…but not too close.  And we especially would prefer that community happens with only people that we get along with, because any alternative is not as enjoyable and…well…messy.  “Messy Community” is described by some as a good thing; others not so much.  What say you and why?
