Hebrews 10:25

Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.

Our culture applauds individualism, but this isolates people from one another and cuts them off from the mainstream of life. The next time you are in a forest, try to imagine what is taking place under your feet. Scientists now know when the roots of trees come in contact with one another, a substance is released which encourages the growth of a particular kind of fungus. This fungus helps to link the roots of different trees — even those of dissimilar species. If one tree has access to water, another nutrients and a third sunlight, the fungus enables the transfer of these items to trees that need them. So the trees have the means of sharing with one another.

God tells us to reach out to one another; build a network of friends and colleagues; above all root yourself into a group that nourishes you spiritually.
