Our small group starts in about 25 minutes and I’m sitting here eagerly anticipating our group members’ arrival and thinking about why small groups are such a blessing…and why–if you’re a Christian–you should run out and join one today.
*Getting to really know people.
*Getting really known by other people.
*Getting to know God better.
*Prayer time that moves way past praying for “Aunt Edna’s neighbor’s swollen big toe” type prayer requests.
*Hearing people pray who aren’t paid to pray.
*Getting weekly ownership of a red plastic cup because your name is written on the side of the cup in black Sharpie ink.
*Never having to recruit people to help you move.
*Never sitting alone at the hospital.
*The occasional rebuke…when needed.
*Knock at the door indicating the group is arriving.
Got to go! It’s group time.
