Community as a bowl

Had a discussion with somebodu today about what my perception of Christian community is, what a suitable analogy might be.

The one I came up with was that of a bowl within a bigger bowl. So everybody in community is a part of the smaller bowl, so that when cracks appear on the edges,a nd when pieces start to fall apart, they fall into, and are held by the rest of the bowl-everybody else.

But if they ahppen to fall outside the people bowl, the bigger bowl that is God is always there to help catch and support them.

Kinda cheesy, but a helpful analogy for me at the moment.
