I read this blog today that I thought was very revealing. It is 10 ways to avoid building community at church.

The first 5 are:
1. Keep conversations short.
2. Always sit in your “assigned” seat.
3. Avoid new people.
4. Come in late.
5. Leave immediately after the service (or early).

If you want the whole article and the rest of the list, go here.
