Today marks a fresh start for friendships as registration begins for a new session of (In)courage groups for Christian women. In these groups you will find amazing camaraderie, heartfelt prayer support, cheering you on type encouragement, humble empathy and more. There is an empty spot needing what only you can pour into it among like minded friends.
As C.S. Lewis said in his book “The Four Loves”, ‘Friendship arises out of mere companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden)..It is when…they share their vision – it is then that friendship is born….The opinion of this little circle, while I am in it, outweighs that of a thousand outsiders, as friendship strengthens. It will do this even when my friends are far away.’
I can attest to this in the (In)Courage groups I have been in for near empty nesters in the last couple years. Even though I have been involved in different groups during different sessions, the friendships formed have been tenacious. If you are approaching an empty nest or already knee deep in finding your way through that season, there are several groups just in that category alone for you to choose from. But the mind-blowing thing is that there are over fifty groups covering a a large variety of interests you can choose from to connect with friends who will cheer you on shoulder to shoulder while pointing you to Christ in a closed group setting. Check out this (In)Courage link and find a group for you this week. You will not regret it.
