Small Groups Paradox
I have a confession to make. It’s not something I’m proud of. In fact, I wish it wasn’t true.
I’m not currently part of a small group at my church.
This is tough for me to swallow. Just a year ago I was asked to take on being the small group leader for the church. I’ve written before about how that didn’t work out. It’s just strange how it has worked out.
We were part of a group for a time. For various reasons that have nothing to do with any individuals, we dropped out. Since then, we just haven’t been able to get back into one.
The think about it is, we really want to get into one. There are few things that we want to add to our lives more than being a part of a group of people to study the Bible with and share our lives with.
The problem is that the groups that meet during the week are hard for us to commit to. I never really know when I will exactly get off work and I don’t feel like we would be able to attend enough. The cool thing is that we were invited to one the other day by the host. The bad thing is that, you know, it was a time that isn’t good.
Another problem is that we are both introverted. We need a few people that we know fairly well to be involved in order to have a comfort level when we attend.
It’s a paradox. We want to be involved in a small group, but can’t seem to be able to really find one to join.
What’s going on with your small groups these days?
