for instance; once your child is comfortable they can collaborate with others for instance in our Aer0nauts teams. Here they learn together and approach projects as a team divvying up tasks and sharing them around. Aircraft can be made in separate parts that must function together and this mirrors society as a whole. When this happens the final product is better then the sum of the separate parts.
We think a good way of describing community is as a 'body of many parts' - as found in the Bible:
1 Corinthians 12:15-26 NIV
 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body.  And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body.  If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?  But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the body be?  As it is, there are many parts, but one body.  The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don't need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don't need you!”  On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,  and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,  while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it,  so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.  If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
