As I gaze out onto my backyard, I am struck by how ordinary the trees appear. Each have their own unique attributes but none stand out among the rest. They are more picturesque as a cluster of nondescript trees that fill the forest behind my house. In the same manner, we as humans are ordinary, but when gathered together, something extraordinary occurs.
Each Thursday at 2:00, I facilitate a Zoom meeting with women who want to read and reflect upon the Word of God. Each woman comes with their own insecurities and tidbits that they want to add to the discussion. The amazing thing is that once the hour begins until it is over, this particular collection of women are transformed into a spiritual cosmos that is nothing but ordinary.
We have been created to come together. Jesus assures us in Matthew 18:20 “When two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
So if you are feeling a little ordinary today, call on a friend or two and bring Jesus into the conversation. You will be amazed at what will happen next.
