If you’ve been reading Connect Daily this week, you’ve gotten a little glimpse into the lives of four different people with one thing in common. Each person has witnessed firsthand the power of community. Each one intimately knows what it’s like to not have community. They know the loneliness, spiritual drought, and “just survive” mentality that come when there is an absence of a community that cares and loves one another. Maybe you feel this way. Maybe you have just moved to a new town. Or started a new job. Or are just struggling to make it through the day. Don’t be discouraged. You are not the only one. Caleb, Charlie, Melodi, and Lindsey know exactly how you feel. They were there too, and if it weren’t for community, they would still be there.
Community has the power to turn your world upside down. It will enable you to thrive. To reach a whole new level of living, surrounded by people who love and care for you because you care for them. There is the potential for community all around you, but here’s the deal – community doesn’t happen by accident. True community is a result of intentional action. So get outside. Go say hi to someone. Lend a helping hand. Show a little bit of love and see what happens. And let us help you. Visit connectmovement.com/getstarted to connect with us personally. We would love to encourage you and help you find life-giving community.
