This really isn't a great picture -- in fact it is probably a less than mediocre image.  I took it because as I was watching the ducks congregate in the creek that runs through our local city park, I was thinking about community.

Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  Galatians 6:2

Ducks know it.  They gather together into community.  I don't know what a group of ducks is called -- a flock? -- but they come together in the park for the betterment of all.

We, too are created to be in community.  Steve rode in a bicycle ride from Huntington, WV to Washington, DC.  It was all about community.  From the pace lines to the fund raising to the cause for which they raised funds to the support vehicles, it is all about community.

We are created by God to be in community.  It is in helping others that we grow.  It is in allowing others to help us that we strengthen them.  It sounds trite, but together we can do more than we ever dreamed of apart from each other.

Go forth and find your duck group, if you haven't already.

By the way, a group of ducks is called a raft.  A group of flying ducks is a team and a group of ducks on the water is a paddling.  What amazing stuff you can find on the internet.  I leave it up to you to determine its veracity.
