Today I did a book discussion at the E.L. Evans Center in Grove City, Ohio. Most of the members were busy having fun playing cards and it was good to see the friendship in action.
Three had signed up to join in the book discussion of my newest book, God Whispers: Nudges, Fudges and Butterfly Moments. The weather is blustery today and I think it deterred the third from joining us. After we had been talking for about 45 minutes or so, I said I love the Bible verse that says something like, “Where two or more are gathered in my name…” and I looked it up to make sure:
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
I remember a Bible song that runs in my head with this verse and find it comforting.
So today Francine, Ginny and I had a discussion about many issues in our world today and listened as we each talked from our experiences about the times God has nudged us into action, times we fudged our reaction and times we knew we had succeeded, with God’s help, to shed the trappings of this world to be free like a butterfly when it sheds it cocoon, or chrysalis.
It really matters not how many gather to discuss how God has sustained us and blessed us in our lives. In encourage you to do this when you have the opportunity.
Here we are:
