You are part of a community, whether it is in the workplace, a family, a church or a circle of friends. But often these communities fall short of what God would have them be.

What does God desire for your relationships with other people?

How can you build true community?

How does God use community to build you into Christlikeness?

In this study guide, Jan Johnson covers the disciplines of community and submission. Going deeper in these areas will help you to build true communities with those around you.

"Jan Johnson gives realistic direction on what we can do to make connecting with God the basis of day to day existence. Such a relationship cannot be handed to us, but we can be led into it by someone who knows the way. She does. She opens a path on which anyone can actually and continuously grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ--anyone, no matter their background or circumstances."

Dallas Willard, author of Hearing God and The Divine Conspiracy
