Community: "Communication"

Randy Christian

The very words “community” and “communication” tell you they are related.  Communication is the sharing of thoughts/feelings/etc. between two or more people.  For true community to exist, communication must be good.  Perhaps that's why the scripture is so full of guidance on communication.  When we are effective communicators, it not only builds community between us, it helps us to reach out to those who are not part of our community.

Prayer: "Listening"

Randy Christian

Most of us pray by talking.  Some of us pray by singing.  But perhaps the hardest part of prayer for most people is being quiet and listening.  How do we do that?  What do we listen for?  How do we know the difference between God’s voice and our own thoughts and feelings?
