Erika Carney Haub at the Margins posts this quote from Eugene Peterson.
"It destroys the people in the big churches, because they are no longer dealing with community; they’re just part of a crowd.

In the vaunted small-group movement—which certainly has some good things going for it (probably earlier on, more than now)—people say, ‘Well, we take care of community by having small groups.’

Well, those aren’t communities—those are people you like. And, you know, a community has to have people you don’t like in it."

From an interview with Eugene Peterson in Radix magazine
