Community

“What’s the point of living forever, if you’re alone on a Sunday?”

One of my new weekly TV shows I have become fascinated with is Lodge 49. This show is along the lines of The Big Lebowski with its laid back philosophies, and some surrealism thrown in for taste. In this week’s episode, a line jumped out at me towards the end of the episode in reference to someone trying to achieve immortality. “What’s the point of living forever, if you’re alone on a Sunday?”

This line jumped out at me, because at least personally, and I feel on a societal level, Sundays are built up to be this grand day of rest and community. We have Sunday dinners with family, Church services (at least in most of Christian faith), farmers’ markets, and in the fall we have NFL football for a fair amount of us. Even though Lodge 49, is by no means a Christian show, I think this statement digs at one of the many reasons that a major section of Christ’s teachings centers around community. Even just our time on Earth is not meant to be spent alone. This doesn’t just mean a lack of marriage or significant other sense of alone, but just being without a community, people who can’t support you. As followers of Christ, being that community for other people, and developing that community for ourselves, is a vital part of following Christ to the best of our ability, because without it, the goal of eternal life, seems a lot less interesting.
