A community approach to Christian education

The reading for this week's Christian Education class is on different approaches to Christian Education. 
Being that I will be involved with the creation of a new community this year, I read the chapter on a community approach. 
Don't have too much to say, other than that the key elements of community education of 
service, reflection and communion 
evoked the following parallels for me: 
all of life, identity, ritual (all leading to wholeness)
outward focus, inner life nurture, embracing the transcendent/ immanent / sacred
collective story (of wider community), my story / our (smaller community) story, God's story -  which all equal the Sacred Story
