Last night we unexpectedly had about half our usual numbers at PRAXIS, Element's "third place" small group, and I was a little disappointed about that until a young lady who's recently started visiting said this:
"I became a Christian eight months ago. If I go back to my country, they'll hang me." (Pause) "But it's okay."
But it's okay.
Kinda puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
And then our group had the awesome privilege of helping her figure out how to navigate her new Bible.
