Letter of Truth: Part "Community"

Oh m’gosh, y’all.

I seriously have the greatest community group in the history of the universe. I’m just sayin’. I can’t name a person in the group that doesn’t rock, and some of ’em rock extra. Like Sarah Beth Plummer, who is a total hoot and way smarter than the average four year old. I swear, some of the things that she says — like: “Witches do not accomplish God’s plan.” Who says that? Chandi Plummer, that’s who, and that explains why Sarah Beth says it too. Or… the time when Rob was putting Sarah Beth to bed just as we were all getting ready to do prayer time, and SB leaned down the stair (in Rob’s arms) to sing “So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight…” to us. Priceless.

And who else has a community group where all the ladies stand around the living room and sing snippets of show tunes and laugh at each other? Or a group where people regularly say, “Can we pray for you about that right now?” Or one so full of servant-hearted folks that nobody can express a need without someone immediately asking how they can help?

This is the family of God, y’all. Meals. Help packing a rented truck to move. Cleaning. Babysitting. Coming early to set up and leaving late to help clean up. Simple things that, done out of love, reinforce the truth of the Gospel lived out in community — they remind us that we do not walk this road alone, nor are we blazing new trails. We tread a well-worn path, surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.

  1. I feel the exact same way! Our CG has been such a tremendous source of blessing and encouragement to me over the past month. I hope we have the opportunity to know eachother better. A musical night is definitely in order…
