And when Barnabus had found Saul, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a while year they assembled with the church and taught a great number of people.
Acts 11:26

The internet has expanded the definition of tribe. Whereas tribe historically had geographical as well as cultural implications, today geographically has been superseded by the internet. Today, one can be part of a tribe-an affinity group with cultural, social, or other ties-that is linked digitally rather than constrained geographically. Tribes provide identity, support, education, and social links not available outside the tribe.
In that sense, the Body of Christ is a giant tribe. But to gain the social and spiritual benefits, tribes need to be smaller-a church, family, or other close-knit group. The apostle Paul's (Saul's) tribe was the church at Antioch. They sent him out on his first missionary journey and it was to them he returned. The people in our tribe deserve a shout-out. They miss us, welcome us, encourage us, correct us, and nature us as we grow.
What is our Tribe? Let they know how much we appreciate them being thee for us. Give them a shout-out soon. The faintest whisper of support and encouragement uttered by a Christian in the ears of his fellow believer is heard in heaven.
