Lesson #2: Circles
So what about circles, Ben? What makes circles worth writing about? What can we learn from the circle? Here are a few things I think of:
- Inclusion: Circles put everyone on an even playing field. Everyone can see everyone else. The whole group can see and hear what is going on in the center (the focus of the group). Jesus sure liked to include everyone and anyone in what he did...just saying.
- Value: In a circle, there is no beginning and no end. There is no first, no last, and no pecking order. I think Jesus talked about that sort of thing once or twice. We can certainly stand to remember that more often.
- Faith Circle: I love the visual of "Faith Circle". Our lives are full of people, past and present, that impact our faith in some way and help us to grow. Those people make up our faith circles. Who is in your faith circle? Who is it in your life that loves God and loves you?
