LIFE! Ours has found it’s rhythm over the past few weeks, and it’s an encouraging thing to behold.
We’ve recently added some new folks to the fold, and we started reading/discussing the New Testament portion of the LifeJournal Bible reading plan. It’s the most simple of structures for lifegroup. Each day we read and journal about the passage. When we get together on Tuesday we each share the verse(s) that stood out to us in our reading.
Last week I was called to another meeting, so I asked our newest Youth Min staffers to lead the group discussion. Ali Bruce and Jake Nold did such a good job that Kim couldn’t wait to brag on them to me.
Tonight’s discussion was supposed to center around Ephesians 5-6 and Philippians. We managed to cover 4 chapters of the reading, which led to so much good discussion that we hated to stop for the night. Some of our big takeaways for the night included
- a renewal of our effort to pray more
- an increase in intentionality/awareness of spiritual warfare
- a call to live as missionaries in and to our present culture
I am loving what I see in our lifegroup, and can hardly wait to see what the Lord has for us in the weeks to come!
