Episode 8: “Building Community” – Paige Brumley

Hebrews 12:1

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us..”

Many times we focus on the latter part of verse one that talks about throwing off the sin and running the race with endurance.  We tend to miss the first part about being surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.  For Paige that meant that her trials weren’t just about her, but also about that cloud of witnesses that gathered around her during those times.  The community that walked with her and encouraged her to endure the season of life she was in.

 

WHAT ELSE WE TALK ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Having “truth-tellers” in your life
  • Letting people into the messy and hard parts of your life
  • How God made us for community
  • Recognizing those “safe” people in your life you can talk to
  • Practical ways to build your community

 

REFERENCES:

  • “At every crisis in one’s life, it is absolute salvation to have some sympathetic friend to whom you can think aloud without restraint or misgiving.” – Woodrow Wilson
