Community Teaching Notes

Family, Friends and Neighbors - Those Outside the Nest by Jennifer Waddle
Have you ever taken the time to write out every role you play on this earth? Wife, Mom, Daughter, Friend, Neighbor, etc.The list can end up really long! So how do we do it? How do we nurture all the relationships we have, in a balanced and meaningful way? This is a tough one. For instance, my parents live only about twenty minutes down the road and we don't see them more than once or twice a month. It's sad, really, and I'd like to change it. My neighbors come and go, and we wave to each other, but slip right into our houses without any real connection...


The Art of Getting Along: Living the Life God Intends by Jill Briscoe
Harmony is concord or agreement. Another word for harmony is “peace” – and making peace is often very hard work. For example, it took a few hundred diplomats to work out a peace agreement in May 1983 to end the conflict between Israel and Lebanon that began in 1982. Then it took thousands of soldiers to enforce and maintain the peace. The same principle is true for believers: achieving harmony is hard, but being a peacekeeper once a truce is declared is even harder. It’s a spiritual art.


Expressions of Love - You Love, or You Don't by Shanna Gregor
Most likely you didn’t start your day with a list of mistakes you wanted to make today. No. Failure to choose love often comes under the disguise of assisting someone. For example, trying to convince someone that your opinion is the opinion that is correct, or your way is the right way - the best way. Have you ever corrected someone’s English in public? I have, and I had to ask for forgiveness - I embarrassed them, but not as much as I embarrassed myself. It didn’t matter that my “help” was correct according to Webster’s Dictionary...


The Greatest of These is Love - Introduction by Deb Waterbury
I have to admit, I'm not much of a scarf wearer. I've always felt like my shoulders are too broad, and my neck too thick for a scarf. But I like them. I think they look great on others. And the choices of colors and styles are endless! I do, however, wear emotional or habitual scarves every day. And some of them aren't flattering. Now, I have to tell you, that when I first came up with the idea for this Bible study, I was originally going to...


Winning Souls by Renee Fisher
Earlier in the year we learned how to share our faith (see Week 29 // Friday • page 304 through Week 30 // Thursday • page 304). But what about the person who is sharing his or her faith? In other words, what’s in it for you? Here are a few things the Bible tells us about those who share their faith: He who wins souls is a lifesaver. Proverbs 14:25 says, “A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful...


Becoming a Good Leader by Courtnaye Richard
Do you believe in your heart that God is calling you to be a leader? Whether it’s at work, in your community, or in ministry, do you feel that tug? Some of you reading this may already be in a leadership position, but I believe there’s always room for growth…especially spiritually. Wherever you are at this point in the process, I believe that God has placed this post on my heart to share these helpful nuggets with you...


I Need to Forgive by Nicole Unice
On October 2, 2006, Charles Roberts walked into an Amish one-room schoolhouse, took hostages, and opened fire on the defenseless children inside. In the end, five girls would lose their lives, with Roberts also killing himself. Although the tragedy itself was devastating, what shocked the world was the way the Amish responded...


The Playroom of Parenting by Paulette Phillips
In the middle of labor pains with our first child, my floodgate of tears revealed me to be a giddy first time mother who was suddenly struck with a fear of looming responsibility. Few joys compare to what I felt when I held my baby in my arms for the first time in the hospital. My mother wisely said, “You have just experienced your greatest joy and your deepest pain!”...


Those that Know Their God by April Motl
''The people who know their God will be strong and carry out great exploits.'' - Daniel 11:32b NKJ What does a really ''great exploit'' look like to you? What image does the word ''strong'' conjure up in your mind? For me, the definition of these words varies from day to day. On those bone-dry-so-tired-I-can-hardly-stand days I think a really great exploit consists of facing down yet another load of laundry, dishes and a grocery list...


The Company of Women, Beauty Forged In Suffering by Stasi Eldredge
I am not a cynic. Not really. Well, many mornings I do wake up cynical, but after I have invited the Holy Spirit to fill my heart and my mind, I’m not. Still, it wasn’t a difficult decision to group the two chapters “The Company of Women” and “Beauty Forged in Suffering” together. So much of the quality of our inner life is shaped through suffering, and so much suffering comes to us through our relationships...


Why We Need Women's Retreats by Lori Hatcher
We have a hundred reasons why we can’t go on a women’s retreat. Some years the voices win out, and we stay home. Later, when we hear the glowing reports about how wonderful it was, we feel a pang of regret, but it doesn’t last long. “Oh well,” we say, “maybe next year.” Other times we make the extra effort, and we’re the ones sharing happy stories and telling how glad we are that we attended. I’ve been a Christian for over 30 years, and I’m a firm believer in women’s retreats. Here are a few reasons why, with accompanying reinforcement from Scripture.
