Five Minute Friday - The prompt for last Friday was Join and I am joining later that usual.
I am sad to admit that though I thought of myself as an active member of my church, teaching or attending Sunday school, helping out where I could on Sunday morning, even hosting our church’s home group, I had not really joined the family. Oh, I was a member of the larger family of God, but I had not become a part of my church family.
Recently a sister in Christ from my church and I were talking about the differences between our generation and that of our parents. What she said has stayed on my mind.
“We are different from our parents generation because for them, church was more than just another activity in their lives; church was their family. It was a priority. It was the center of their social life.”
