Hi there. Thanks again for joining with others in this series of prayer throughout this month of January. Hope things are going ok with you as you begin to gear up for another year! We grow is a value at Reedy and so we desire to grow first in our faith but also as a community of believers. Acts 2:46 says, “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:46 NIV). You get the feeling that there was a strong sense of community feel amongst those early Christians. With so much fragmentation in our society, we want to swim against that tide and be known for our love for one another. I don’t know about you, but I want to belong to such a community. But it doesn’t just happen. Its takes work to maintain unity, looking out for one another, dealing with conflict in healthy ways. Let’s pray about this and ask God to help us grow in our fellowship with each other – that it will be real, authentic, caring, fun, and joyful.
