Earlier this month, we launched a new season of community groups - families of missionaries empowered by the gospel. Two challenges that every group must tackle head on:
- The desire to have real community without addressing the very real costs of time, energy and emotion that it inevitably takes to build life around each other.
- The default operating system that turns community groups into little more than a Bible Study. We do study the Scriptures in community groups but that serves as one aspect of building life around each other.
If you're part of a community group, I promise that these two issues will come up this fall and are most likely a very real part of your group right now. You should probably do something about that today.
