So last week deserves a big WOW! Did you know that within 27 hours our Connection Groups registration was completely full?? It was incredible to watch the ladies joining from all corners of the globe. Knowing that they will be connecting with each other each week this fall brings a huge smile to my face.
I know that many were disappointed to miss out on Connection Groups this session. Well, we may have an option for you. No promises. But do pray, and stay tuned. So many are hungry for connection!
Our hope and plan is to be able to offer many more connection groups for the spring session. If you are interested in applying to be a mentor for our spring session, please contact us here. The more mentors we have, the more groups we’ll be able to offer.
And now for this week’s theme…”Distance.” A word that has drastically affected each of our lives, hasn’t it?
We have such great posts in store for you this week. (I know I might say that every week, but really, I am continually amazed at what flows out of this place.) You’re going to love this week!
Here are a few questions to get your thoughts going…
- How has distance from your passport country affected your life?
- What’s the hardest thing to be distant from?
- When is distance a good thing?
- How do you balance being fully invested in where you are while at the same time staying connected with relationships in your “home” country?
- Is there emotional distance in any of your relationships, maybe with God? What do you think God wants to say to you about this distance?
Bring your thoughts and blog posts to The Grove and we’ll all share on the prompt “Distance.”
And don’t forget that Tuesday is “Ask the Author” day at Book Club! Kimberlee Conway Ireton, author of Cracking Up: A Postpartum Faith Crisis will be here answering your questions!
