“Why join a small group?” you may ask,
The answer, I’m afraid, is no easy task.
One answer is because it is where we love,
not from our own strength but as a gift from above.
Another reason may be it is where we learn,
the word of God as we wrestle and yearn.
A third answer here that I argue to you,
small groups are where we pray and do.
Do God’s will by serving and sharing,
all in the spirit of the author of caring.
Answering the “why?” can be hard, until you taste,
glorifying God in small groups makes much else waste.
Small groups are a glimpse, this side of eternity,
of God’s perfect will for sacred community.
