We all exist in circles. They are our spheres of relationships; the loose boundaries of how we define who we’re close to. We have family circles, work circles, friendship circles, and church circles. Some of our circles are small, and our commitment to those in that circle with us is deep and powerful. Some of our other circles are larger, and the connections we share within those circles require less commitment, and may even be subject to frequent change. Regardless of the circle involved, our life within these spheres shapes who we become. We judge our day-to-day quality of life by what happens in our circles, and if our life within a particular circle is shaky and poor, then we feel it throughout all of our lives. And maybe even bring that into our other circles.
This Sunday at Liberty Hill we’ll begin a new series that explores our life within the circles. We’ll consider how to bring out the best in one another, and in ourselves. I’ll begin the series this Sunday by examining the first circle we all know best: the family circle. Sunday School begins at 9:30 AM, and Circles kicks off in our worship service at 10:30 AM.
