FYI (long)
September - 25 - 2020

Happy Friday, Crossroads! Friday is my day off. The odds are good that I’m in my fishing kayak in the middle of a lake right now enjoying some SOLITUDE. 

Even though I’m a “people-person,” I love my times of solitude. My guess is you do too! They refresh and restore our weary souls. Someone had once said, “Solitude is a gift from God, but isolation is a tool of Satan (our enemy).”

Why is isolation so bad? Because left alone we self-destruct. We’re not made to do life alone. God made that very clear right after he created Adam. We’re made for community with others. We’re better, much better, with others.

COVID-19 has driven us to epic seclusion/isolation which I believe is deadlier than any disease. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying COVID-19 isn’t dangerous. I’m not saying toss your mask away and go hang with your peeps without any precautions.

I am saying we all need one another right now more than ever.

I am saying we all need to take a step back (or for the first time) into community with others.

I am saying GET IN A CROSSROADS SMALL GROUP!!!!!!

We have online (Zoom) groups and we have in-person groups that will practice appropriate distancing. Go to CR.life and click on GROUPS. There you will find our Groups catalogue. Find one that matches your needs and your level of comfort. There are dozens of them, and most are still open. Move quickly since we launch groups next week!

Get outside this weekend and enjoy some solitude. Then, get in a group and leave the land of isolation. You’ll be glad you did!

Cheering you on,

Pastor Phil
