Most work days, I sit in my cubicle, crunching numbers of some sort. I do venture out, but only for short stints. Today was like most days: not much person to person interaction. This does not mean community did not happen, however, for wherever the web is, there can be some sort of community.
Email was the venue: desperate prayer request, great praise for a hardcase trusting Christ for the first time, and an inside joke with a friend. The relations are real, even if the geography is virtual. Still, it is not enough. On days like this, I miss the deeper face to face.
