Better Together – 40 Days of Community – Day 12

Day 12 – Do you have any meaningful friendships with nonbelievers?
OH YEAH!!!! This is one I believe in big time and have always believed in. When I had a house church a few years back my key idea or vision was the following from Brian McClaren’s book, More Ready Than You Realize:
We are a community bound together and energized
by faith, love and commitment to Jesus Christ.
Even though you don’t yet share that faith, love and commitment,
you are most welcome to be with us, to belong here,
to experience what we’re about.
Then, if you are attracted and persuaded by what you see,
you’ll want to set down roots here long-term.
And even if you don’t, you’ll always be a friend.
I have many friends that are not believers. I pray for each one that when they are ready to take a step, whatever that step may be, that I will be there for them to help them along the way.
