We talked as a large group about the dangers of being what the Bible calls a fool. Which, in Bible terms, refers to someone who lacks wisdom. Foolishness is like a bad smell. It bothers us more at first than when we have been around it for a while. When you are around foolish people, you can become foolish yourself without even realizing it. We spent a good amount of time in small groups with one another talking about how to fool-proof our lives. We did some self-evaluation (called the “Foolishness Test”), came up with strategies about how to become wiser people, and prayed for help this week in making wise decisions.
We also announced the beginnings of our plan in our teen ministry to develop a Big Brother-Big Sister program to be fully in swing by March of this year. As great sources of wisdom are found in each other, we feel strongly that connecting our teens and other ministries will be a great benefit to all of us. More information will come via the website, church announcements, and midweeks – please stay tuned!
Thanks to all who came out and made it a great evening!
