What does living in a faith community look like? Sometimes it looks like standing in church worshipping God with complete strangers, united by our common love for Jesus. Other times it looks like one single friend simply showing up exactly when I need her. Something as simple as a text at the right moment, or a word of encouragement to spur me on in a difficult season, reminds me I am not alone; God has knit me into the community of His people.
This issue of HomeFront also focuses on going back to school— from our Kids in the Kitchen to our Everyday Mom and Dad Blogs we want to support you with encouragement to kick this new school year off right.
The bottom line is: we need each other. It’s clear throughout Scripture that God did not design us to live life alone. Whether it’s the excitement of the first day of school or the difficulties of a health scare like we read about in Tough Topics, life is better when other believers surround us with love and strengthen us with truth. Our hope is that this issue of HomeFront will give you fresh ideas on how to come alongside those who are already in your faith community and to be on the lookout for others you can invite in.
