Building Community…

Attended my first group at NCC… a men’s group, the first one I’ve been a part of (men’s) in a good while.  Awesome time.  The varied makeup of our group reminds me of  the contrast in characters that made up Jesus’ disciples… we’ve got:

– a therapist dude…
– a govt. scientist advisor dude…
– a law firm research dude…
– a ministry media dude…
– a federal agent in-training dude…
– a sales dude…
– 2 unemployed hippie dudes, lol…
– a govt technical writer dude…
– and a construction dude.

LOVE IT!

Multi-varied by trade… multicolored by ethnicity.

I LOVE IT!

But what I loved the most… was that there were TEN DUDES, who were serious about wanting to do life with others.  TEN DUDES who realize that God has created us to know and be known.  TEN DUDES  who are willing… and committed… to building community with each other so that we can help one another struggle well with life. Life is too tough to go through by ourselves… that’s why God said it’s “not good” for us to be alone…

Alone is hell.

Building community… connecting with God and with one another…

Man… this is what small group life is all about.  And it’s gonna rock. 😉

Until lata,
