We come into our world broken, with a “missing piece” because of the fall of Adam. A parent’s responsibility is to cooperate with God in the process of shepherding a child to Christ–where completeness happens (Colossians 1:28).
True community is when two people are sharing (Philippians 2:1) their most treasured possession with another person (Matthew 6:21). Our greatest treasure is God, and there are two aspects to our relationship with God–the good and the bad (Hebrews 4:12-13). Therefore, true community is sharing both of those aspects with someone else.
Rick launched the Life Over Coffee global training network in 2008 to bring hope and help for you and others by creating resources that spark conversations for transformation.
