How do you create a community in which you feel connected in a deeply personal way?

What does Creating Community and being known in your community mean to you at the deepest human level? Are we settling for a life where being part of a 'community' consists of having lots of Facebook friends? In a society where neighbors can go without knowing one another, co-workers co-exist, and we spend more an more time developing relationships on-line, I ask what do YOU seek in a deeply caring community? How do you approach building a life so that you are surrounded by people who truly know you, people whom you care deeply about? Please share your stories.
