Unhurried Chunks of Time

I read in this book by John Ortberg that the reason why we have sooo much problem trying to build community is becase we are trying to build a 1st century community using 21st century principles.

1st century community was like the amish church. Everyone was connected not because they emailed each other regularly or gossiped but because they met regularly. Mercy a verse in Acts said that they met everyday in each others houses.
21st century principle is the Ipod, Text messaging, Cell phone way. We are always in a hurry but in order to form relationship you need to slow down and just chill with a person. No clocks nothing. Just chill
