It's tough to find community in suburbia. Real community. We hole ourselves up in our houses and hang out in our fenced backyards. What if we tried something different. I ran across an interesting post on ten ways to radically live for God in suburbia. While several of them seemed way too hippie for me, I think some of them are extremely doable (work less, drive less, grow food, get to know your neighbors, be outside), and some are really attractive (throw out the television) if you can convince your family.
While not all of these will work in every context, I think it is an interesting read and will make you think about how you can intentionally create community within suburbia and how you can show the love of God in your everyday life.
