just like family
kristy and i are in a great small group. it formed in the fall of '06 and we are still going strong into '08. we lost a couple (to a job move) and we added a "couple" (TWINS!!) as well as a few more kids, and have really grown to love each other. we've had some great discussions about God and scripture and life, and some great discussions about how annoying Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is (women, the problems in your marriage are not completely your fault as some would have you believe). kristy and i don't have kids and it has been a real joy to get to be around our friends with kids and see the love they have for each other. just in the last year, we've gotten to see their kids grow and mature. it's such a blessing to "do life" with these people. i highly recommend community. the small group seems to be the model we get from the early church. people coming together, supporting each other, loving each other, and reaching out to others... together.
