We sit around the table after the large group teaching and we share for 90 minutes. The time goes quickly and I stand (or sit) in awe of how our stories intersect and how a group that were complete strangers five weeks ago, now feel connected and curious about one another.
Tonight we talked about contempt and comparison. We shared how we struggle and the power of believing truth. Some were invited to define a vision for themselves and others invited to grieve. There is a lot of intent listening, pursuing and nodding of heads. There is a growing awareness that we share many of the same struggles and longings. Each week I am grateful for a small group who is committed to living life differently. It is a courageous journey to walk. It is a rewarding way to live….
I want to close with a favorite quote of mine which I find so true in each and every journey group I participate in….
”Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” ~ C.S. Lewis
