An Imperfect Community

A community that is committed to itself - to appearing perfect, stable and secure - rather than to people, to their growth and inner freedom, is like a person giving an address who is more interested in the beauty and coherence of the talk rather than in whether the audience can hear and understand it. It is like a beautiful liturgy that nobody can follow and during which people have difficulty praying.
