The world we live in has more people on antidepressants than any other generation that has gone before us. Stress or anxiety are primary factors, but loneliness, I feel, plays a huge part in today’s society as well
We have even forgotten how to laugh without social media being involved. We are a world that laughs while taking 100 photos, to get the right angle, so that in the end, we ”pretend” to laugh, to make sure everything is picture perfect!
We need a revival of joy, laughter, fun, and love…
At our church, we are intentionally building community through different connect groups. These groups are designed for different people, with different personalities, but similar interests to come together. It’s a place where these groups bring others in unity because people learn to trust, and therefore relationships are formed, through love
We need to get connected. Go to the movies with people. Take a long walk. Have a coffee. Run that marathon. Play sport. Study the Bible together…Whatever it is that fills your tank, but let’s have fun, together.
Joy is what attracted me to Christians. I wanted to know why they were so happy. Little did I know, as an atheist, that the joy of the Lord is infectious.
God wants us to belly laugh our way to heaven – together. To loosen up! The world is too serious trying to get the perfect ”laughing” selfie. The world doesn’t need another serious Christian reading the law. We’re not supposed to tolerate each other, but love one another – because we want too
The church is awesome. Jesus did cool things. Joshua made the sun stand still, through prayer. David killed a giant with small stones. Moses won a war by lifting his arms…so many amazing things have happened, because of God
Let’s be a community that shows others how amazingly awesome God really is! But, who He truly is – not by miracles of our outward circumstances, but by the transformation of ourselves, internally.
I never experienced life, the way I do now, since finding God.
