These days we are in a new church situation. I don't have a strong feeling of community at Revolution. Mainly because of our geographical location I think, we live too far, and gas is too expensive to make it to their home groups that meet throughout the week. Those home groups(or a Sunday school class), they are key. That is where the community building happens. Where it really comes to life. Though we do have people around us right now, that I would consider my community, a lot of them are based in the Raytown area. It literally makes me queazy to think about that fact that when our lease is up (in just a few short months) I have no idea really where we will be living. Probably in the city somewhere, but the thought of having to rebuild our community and try to fit our (rather large) family into a new "place" makes it hard to breath. I know that I need to branch out. And not think of this as replacing our current community, but more like broadening it.
Life is so much more bearable when you have people going it with you. I love you guys.
