Looking for ways to connect with those around you? Guideposts has a great list to get you started HERE. They’re calling it the Connect Challenge.
Not only are there 20 ideas for connecting, there are articles and details within an idea. For instance, the sub-article for Connection Idea #4 (Icebreaker) is about overcoming social anxiety, especially after so many months of having isolation as a focus!
POSSIBLE ACTION: Try one or more of these challenge ideas over the next week or so. You’ll feel more connected to another person and also likely get some good spiritual food as well…
PRAYER: Dear God, prepare us to be “the touch of Jesus” in other’s lives today. May your touch and presence find us “just where we are,” that we might extend those same characteristics and efforts to those we are naturally with, and those we seek out! Amen.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit…
