One of the best things that ever happened to me is joining Lifegroup.
A small group of people meet and share about the amazing things happening in our lives, and the victories over the trials in them.
We give each other good advice, share about what we believe, Read the bible together and have a lot of fun.
Wait a minute… Read the bible AND have fun? Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible.
I used to think that reading the bible was a recipe for boredom:
Take one story about a man who did a bunch of stuff years ago
Add in a lots of names and numbers
Stir it in with a bunch of rules
And let it cook for 2000 years…
It’s more like this:
Take stories of people doing action movie-like feats of heroism
Add in lots of stories of romance, treachery and ridiculous bad-guys
Stir it in with the ultimate heroic ending
And see how it keeps on nourishing people for 2000 years
In Lifegroup I learned not to be so prejudiced about things I don’t know about.
