March 27  – Connect

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1 John 4:7-8

In his book “Loving People”, Dr. John Townsend speaks of how one of the best things people can do is connect with others. He writes, “What is connection? The best working definition of connection is a heart-to-heart attachment that goes beyond knowing about someone to actually knowing that person. We are not really connected until the heart comes into play. We live in the gap of isolation and aloneness. Connection bridges that gap.”

We have many new faces at Calvary from different backgrounds and cultures. Calvary has a great legacy of showing love and kindness to new people looking to fit in and to belong!

Today’s Prayer Focus:  Pray for new friendships with those who are new to Calvary.
