As I prepare for a new school year, one focus is on building a community to support each other. As we discuss, experiment, and communicate our ideas, everyone in the classroom has a role to support one another. Beyond the classroom, we also need to build community - including empathy and compassion - throughout our lives...even in our spiritual lives!
When we choose to follow God, we enter into a community of believers. We gain brothers and sisters in our faith in God and in the acceptance of redemption through His Son. As humans, we will not have a perfect community. We will experience highs and lows. As we rejoice or mourn, we should strive to support each other. As we rejoice together, mourn together, and keep our community focused on God, we can be build a community and support through love, empathy, and compassion!
Build a community focused on God and support each other whether rejoicing or mourning!
Thank You for the community of believers that is united through Your Son. Help me to alway support this community. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
