Gilbert Bilizekian, in his book, Community 101, writes,

Indeed, community finds its essence and definition deep within the being of God. Oneness is primarily a divine mode of being that pertains to God’s own existence, independently from and prior to any of his works of creation. Whatever community exists as a result of God’s creation, it is only a reflection of an eternal reality that is intrinsic to the being of God.
