Day 9 of Write 31 Days! Today’s word prompt is “join.”
I joined a writing club at my local library when I lived in Moorhead Minnesota! It started out as a great experience. But once I was vulnerable and shared my story, I offended someone else in the writing group. That was not my intention at all. Yet it was a risk I took when I joined that writing group.
The latest news with Ellen and George W Bush has me thinking about this too. Are we willing to be friends with those we disagree with? Are we willing to be kind despite our differences? The thing is God made us all unique and we are all going to have different passions. We are not all going to join in at the same time and jump on the same band wagon.
The most important thing is that God calls us to join and be in community together. We are made to be in relationship with one another. We need to love God, love each other and love ourselves more. (Did you see Annie F Downs big news?—The Love Big Tour?) This is a risk more of us need to take!
