Community…whom do they say that you are? (come join 5 minute Fridays!)


I have some buddies who once a week take up the gauntlet thrown down by the gypsy mama to drop everything and write.  The rules are simple…

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Then we visit the person who linked up before us & encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Come on and join the fun!

:: Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?

Amos 3:3 (ERV)


 Community…

GO:

Last night, I sat in a room with my neighbors, listening to mayoral candidates debate the issues in our sleepy little town.  I call it Mayberry, for there is so much idyllic about it.  A diverse community rich with cultural, racial and ethnic diversity, a community filled with artists, families, people representing both the 99 and the 1 (percent, a la the Wall Street movement).  Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity.

What is community? It is the gathering of people under some unifying banner, location, skill, passion, belief, that identifies them as separate from others.  I represent so many communities.  What both pleases and humbles me are the common threads I weave in all the communities to which I belong…I am known as a child of the Most High King.  That is who I am.

As you work, as you play, as you choose to associate, or stand apart, whom do people say that you are?

STOP:

Knowing who and Whose I am, wherever I am, however I choose to spend my time, reminds me of my many abundant blessings.  I am reminded that God is good.

  1. Knowing who you are and Whose you are is the biggest accomplishment a person can make. Knowing that you bring you and all that is in you to your community is a blessing to those around you. God Bless
