Fellowship and Solitude

I’ve often thought that, based on my mood or personality or fleeting personal preferences, I tend to value either fellowship or solitude more than the other; so I found this quote from a sermon by Mike Bullmore very helpful:

We need fellowship with others to be alone safely. We need solitude to be with others meaningfully.

Also see the comments below the original post for some insightful Bonhoeffer quotes.
