Editor’s Note for October 2015:
Birds of a Feather Flock Together!
We have all seen it: flocks of birds flying together in close formation—the flocks can vary in size—but flamingos fly with other flamingos, as do crows, geese, and most feathered beings. Birds live in community with other birds of their type.
It is the same with people; we tend to associate with others who share similar interests, morals, and values. We too see the power of community—especially when it comes to our faith in Jesus. We want to surround ourselves with other believers who can pray for us, worship with us, and come alongside us to offer support while engaging with a world that denies the truth we live for.
Our October issue issue is filled with ways to connect with your faith community. From the conversation starters where you can get to know the people in your faith community to the everyday mom blog where a third-grade girl reached out to be sure everyone in her community felt included, you won’t be disappointed.
You will want to plan to play game time the next time you get together with your friends, neighbors, and faith community and be sure to serve the kids in the kitchen Pie Pops when you do!
It is not surprising that Paul wrote in Hebrews to “not [give] up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but [encourage] one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (10:25). Paul understood the potential we have when we flock together! Our prayer at HomeFront is that you do as well!
