We > Me
A song that has recently become popular in our society says,
“Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die.
’Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul”
Though it is a catchy song, it is very foolish. If you take a coal out of a fire and move it away from the rest of the firey coals, it will not last long. The singular coal may have a few moments of “fire down in its soul,” but the moment it moves away from the group, is the moment it starts to die out.
This Sunday we are starting a series of teachings entitled We > Me. We will be teaching what the Bible says about not going through life alone. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
In addition to our teachings, we will have a luncheon called Starting Point right after the second service. The purpose of this luncheon is the help everyone who is newer to the church, or desiring to get deeper connections at the church, to have a clear place to start.
Also, on Wednesday night, March 1, at 7 PM, we will begin our first of eight sessions called Explore. In these sessions, people will be able to get a taste of community at Living Streams, to wrestle with deep-rooted teachings of the Christian faith, and have some really good snacks. I mean really good. Not kind of good—really good.
In these next two months, I want to encourage you to increase your Sunday morning participation, and to deepen your community roots at Living Streams—especially, if you have felt the coal of your soul feeing a bit cold.
