The Grace of Reading the Bible with Committed Friends
The pandemic closed our preferred meeting location (a local Starbucks - suburbia has few great coffee choices.) As you can imagine then we missed a couple of months of our early morning meetings. We were forced to get creative and meet in the parking lot instead.
It has been a great way to affirm guidelines for social distancing and continue studying Scripture together.
Today we read an imprecatory psalm and thought through how we pray for those opposed to us in light of Christ. It was a rich conversation on trusting in the Lord's care and purpose and we set out for the day with renewed determination to trust and pray.
I am thankful for these committed friends. We need them. You need them. Do what you can to find them. Open the book, and read.
