A community is more than just a group of people who barely know each other.
We are supposed to be brothers and sisters in Jesus not just acquaintances in Christ.
If we have nothing to do with each other outside of official Church functions then we are not a community at all.
As John Churcher said in his sermon on the Emmaus Road: "Community comes from sharing a sacred meal together."
And he did not just mean Communion.
He meant actually eating a meal together in our homes.
What we are doing is not good enough.
And that is why the Church is dying.
