Hello, I'm a Designer and Front-End Developer. I craft user experiences. I'm a GitHubber.

I write some times, teach, speak and have some side projects too. I love Jesus, am a proud father and husband, and am also a B-boy, skater, and Steeler fan. I've been to Kenya three times and my Kikuyu name is Mwaura. Sushi is probably my favorite food.

Now that you know so much about me why don't you say hi!

Okay, I completely agree with you about the community aspect. I'm not sure that you can separate the individual aspect, but certainly agree that it is intended to be fulfilled within community. If you mean that there is modern idea of individuality APART from community, I could see that too, sure.

Also, how can you claim the statement in John 14:23-26 is not individual, when he clearly uses the word "anyone"? I think you are making a distinction between communal and individual that may not exist.

but by definition, a Church, or a community, is comprised of individuals...

My New Testamant professor in college always explained koinonia to be literally, "having a share, giving a share", implying a direct, one on one, mutual interaction.
