In my latest reading of M. Scott Peck’s The Different Drum: Community Making and Peace, I could identify with some of the people and problems Peck discussed. Peck mentioned a man named Marshall who wanted to focus on abstract theology rather than community building. Peck talked about man named Archie who spoke in poetry, and so people didn’t understand what he was getting at. Then there was a shy lady named Margaret who did not say anything in a group Peck was leading, and Peck thought that her experience was a failure, and yet she told Peck that her time in group was the most joyful experience she ever had. And there was the problem of groups that had arrived at community coming to an end, and the group members having to go back to the cold world.
