For every person who has felt lonely or isolated, The Sacred Us explores a new way of living through the practice of biblical community.

In a world that celebrates individuality and autonomy, too many of us struggle to form deep, meaningful relationships. Loneliness is the norm, rich friendships are rare, and the church is no exception. We long for real community but often don’t know how to get there. What will it take to develop healthy friendships?

The Bible gives us a compelling blueprint for community, but it must be built on more than shared interests or Sunday-morning smiles.

This book explores the substance of biblical community through seven principles:
  • Proximity that provides opportunity
  • Vulnerability that creates connection
  • Discipleship that sets direction
  • Fun that amplifies grace
  • Mission that drives adventure
  • Sacrifice that matures love
  • Boundaries that sustain growth
These principles seek to guide the reader beyond loneliness and isolation into a life of rootedness and connection.
