We Are Meant To Experience Life Together In Fellowship: Purpose Driven Life Chapter 18

Posted by infinitygoods on February 26, 2008

Stripes of Colors by M C M Cruz on Flickr public files “For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midsts.”  Matthew 18:20

We are meant to be with others and to share our feelings.  We grow with the help of others and they in turn grow with our help.

This chapter reminds me of blogging, especially the Christian blogs and the blogs written by Christians.  In our blogs many of us share who we are.  We risk exposure, rejection and  being hurt.  As Rick Warren said, it requires courage and humility and requires that we depend on each other.  How often are the comments sections full of empathy, where we agree, understand and affirm the blogger’s feelings and opinions?  How often do we share each other’s troubles and problems?  It’s because we feel part of a community.

Even though the World Wide Web is wide indeed, we feel connected to the one blogger and to the regular commenters.  The thousands and potentially millions of others who could be visiting become invisible to us and we relate and connect to the small group which appears visible.  In a way, we fellowship with the other bloggers, the other mommies, the other Christians whose lives become intimate to us, slowly and over time.

This is similar to what a small fellowship group in a church should look like.  If we join a small bible study, over the next weeks we will get to know the personal lives of the members as they share and relate to the bible stories on a very personal level.  Soon, the group will relate, empathize and be concerned for the other members.  They will rejoice over triumphs and grieve over losses and hurts.

Fellowship  in the real sense of the word is a very important aspect which is required for our nature, for the way God created us.  We cannot live alone.  We cannot live like hermits.  We cannot live without a community.

Solution For Keys Lost Right In Your Own Home

Posted by infinitygoods on February 26, 2008

I don’t know if it’s premature old age, if it’s too many other things on the brain, or if everybody is like this from time to time, but a few years ago I started losing my keys all over the house, except in a logical spot. Being tired of searching frantically and of making myself late to boot, I hung a decorative wooden box on the wall right behind the front door. It took a couple of days to remember to put my keys in there, but the training period was fast. I also put in there our sunglasses, a spare garage door remote, a spare set of house and car keys and a pen in case I need to sign for something at the door. It works for me and now I’m always ready to go.

So has this happened to you??? Or is it just me?

Never Fear, God Is Here

One of the wildflowers on the mountain you saw in last week’s Word Filled Wednesday. The yellow ones bloomed first. This week the orange ones are popping up in profusion. Our mountainsides have no concern for being irrigated, and each spring God provides an abundance of multicolored blooms. Wishing you all a worry-free Wednesday.
