The ache can press in hard while you are standing in a crowd of people, but no one understands your heart. Or speaks your language. Or knows your name. It can well up as you video chat with family on the other side of the ocean, or in the empty house you come home to at night.
Loneliness doesn’t always make sense, but she has a name. And this week, she is our invited guest at the table.
We are talking about the reality of loneliness this week, and we have a space for you to come to. Let’s be honest about the struggle. What heightens a sense of loneliness for you? How has the Father met you during those times? We hope you will find connection and encouragement as we engage this topic together this week.
