Our Church is doing a 5 week study on Bill Hybels' book "Just Walk Across the Room." Shaina and I's small group begins tonight and I am excited about the potential of this study. I love small groups because community happens there, spiritual growth happens there and pastoral care happens there.
People who are either not connected to church, or are not connected to a small group inside a church family have a very small network for support in crisis. The most amazing thing about God's family that I have witnessed is how they stir to action in moments of crisis.
The challenge to all of us is that small groups do not fall in our lap. We must walk across the room and seek to connect. The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step. Are you ready to take the first step?
