Community At Year End


Last year about this time I was in the midst of a church search.  We spent a great deal of time traveling twenty to thirty miles sometimes to visit a church.  Then we found it.

Or so we thought.

It was good for a time, but like I said in other posts, it just wasn’t a good fit.  We met some great people.  We renewed relationships that been long dormant.  But , in retrospect, it should have just been a place we gathered to heal rather than what we thought was home.

You might recall that at some point around the end of the year and beginning of the year, the One Word I chose for this year was Community.  Community was the theme for my blog and for my church life for the year.

Unlike Bono and the Edge, I finally found what I was looking for.

After all of that travel and months of grinding, we found it.  And only minutes away from where we live.

That doesn’t mean it ‘s perfect.  It’s no more perfect than any other church we have belonged to and visited.

But it’s ours.  It’s our community.

Have we jumped in full force?  No.  But we are moving in that direction more every week to the point where we won’t really jump.  We’ll just be in it.

Community.  I like it.
