The seed that we began to plant in our community a little over a year ago has grown into a tree!
When we first started this meetup group, our goal was to bring the people of Kentuckiana together with a spirit of love and unity in fulfillment of Jesus' words to "Love your neighbor as yourself". We began to do this with small acts of sharing and giving with the hope of building a stronger community.
2020, the year of Covid and quarantine, put an end to that type of person to person community service.
And so, we started an online Bible study to reconnect us to each other, and to God, through His word, the Bible. There must have been similar thoughts out there because people here on our meetup began reaching out; new friends reached out to old friends......suddenly, we had several groups of people getting together; searching for answers to this weird and unsettling year!
People, both young and old, have come to bi-monthly prayer meetings to pray for each other and for our community and for an end to the pain and suffering that Covid has brought into our lives. People of all generations are finding it easy to meet regularly to search for, and find hope in, God's word of life, love and light (since nobody is going anywhere, transportation is NOT a problem!).
Let’s continue to come together and study a word that is all about peace, healing and, above all, Love for God and one another. Let's look to the hearts of people and continue to build a strong community that will overcome all these things as we walk together into 2021!
