I mentioned Thursday that I was going to try discussing spiritual things at HOOT that night. I ended up doing it after we got back from the restaurant, while we were sitting around the Light House living room chatting. I actually brought up this very topic — that we don’t often talk about God and what He’s teaching us outside of church and small group. We had a great discussion that did explore the issue…I was encouraged to hear other people saying that they felt the same way and that they would love to talk about the Lord in any situation.

This really makes me want to study the Bible closely and take note of what I can learn from God so that I can have words of encouragement for others and so that I can bring up an issue to hear what others have to say about it. Discussing the Word of God helps me recognize that it is alive and dynamic…that’s something I feel has been missing in my life lately.
