Talk about real brotherhood/friendship. Revolution’s son’s emergency eye surgery just reminded me of the importance of being there for each other in times of need. As we build a community we want it to function as a real support for people physically, emotionally, spiritually. We need to express our needs but also offer support to each other.
He described how the stress of having a sick child challenges his faith, can lead him to a feeling of helplessness and depression, and also can cause other family relationships to languish as all attention is on one person. He also mentioned how important simple words of encouragement are when he is in the thick of it. Other people are “beacon’s of God’s light” I believe is how he phrased it.
We took time to share concerns, prayer requests, and needs that we have.
