So I've got this friend. Once she was my housemate, my fellow traveler, and in those conversations on porches and in hotel rooms, my heart carved out a place for her to stay. Our roads have diverged here and there, but always, she was one whose love and grace was bright, even on the darkest nights. This isn't just flattery. This is my telling you that I want you to meet her, hear her.
Lore (or as I call her "Lo") Ferguson and I did a whirlwind brainstorm and decided we wanted to chatter a bit about some things on our hearts. Her writing voice is beautiful and true, and has a way of sticking to your ribs in the best way possible. So we decided to swap blog locations and do a mini-series. For the next week or so, she'll be blogging here and I'll be blogging here (at her blog). I hope you can join us at both locations as we look at the word that is on everyone's buzz list these days — community.
I sent Lore a few questions, and she sent me a few to answer as well. My answers are posted over at her blog.
Andrea: What do you think is an obstacle to creating really healthy relationships with people in the church, and outside of the church?
Andrea: How does true community change the way you live your life?
Andrea: Any advice to people who want community, but can't seem to find anyone else to connect with?
Posts start tomorrow!
