Community – Learning

The church was the center of community and of adult learning of ethics and virtue. What is now?

We have schools, recreational activities, cafes and bars, but the bars and cafes aren't terribly social (not for meeting the community).

Village. Belonging. A sense of belonging is a requirement of community relationship.

Schools, particularly primary. To belong to these you must have young family. These do provide some sense of community, but it is not regular like church and is only open to parents of young children. Most persons are not members of this community, particularly young adults and old adults.
