Building Community

One of the lessons I’m currently learning is about friendships and community. A few years ago I distinctly remember saying, ” I don’t need anymore friends. I have too many.” For the last few weeks I’ve had to eat those words. I haven’t lost friends but many friends have moved away, our schedules are hectic, or life has changed . Some are married and some have kids. I don’t know where I got this idea that I’ll eventually reach an age where I don’t need anymore friends or that my community is strong enough.

This week I’m moving out of my comfort zone. Sunday evening, I’m meeting two gals from a Facebook group. Tuesday evening, I’m checking out a small group from a different church. I’m purposely deciding to find friends and building my community.
