CONNECTING defined: To think of (something or someone) as being related to or involved with another person, thing, event, or idea; to have or establish a rapport; connecting with generations.
As I reflect back over the past week and a half, I am amazed at how our church has been connecting. Though our midweek Collide event hosted 16 different electives, the best part wasn’t the electives, but the interaction of everyone who participated; our Saturday “Giveaway,” and the joy we experienced connecting with our community and seeing their response to our generosity; the joy of being able to provide a large load of furniture to the victims of the Lake Isabella fire; the excitement Sunday evening with our INTERGEN Collision, seeing the connecting of generations through fun, food and fellowship; and then this past Wednesday evening, when 97 women participated in the “Girls’ Night Out,” an exciting mix of ladies from our church and community (I was blessed to have a terrarium made for my office, thank you). Now I look forward to connecting with a group of our men as I join them over at the coast for the weekend. Connecting is a vital part of a disciple’s life, so join me as we continue to find ways to connect with others, letting the love of Christ flow through us to them.
