"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.

ROCC Small Groups Rock!

(Video link is below, the above is not a live link)
After a short summer break, the River Oaks Community Church (Clemmons, NC) small groups start up this week.  If you have been part of a small group in the past, you have likely experienced the benefits of spiritual growth, fellowship and service that these groups can generate.  In short, they are about creating an environment that stresses transparency, being real and ultimately living out life together. 

However, if you haven't had the opportunity to participate in a small group, you might have some reservations. The video below probably captures your concerns, and your worst nightmares, perfectly.  I can assure you that our ROCC performers have highly exaggerated how these groups behave. We do have a great deal of fun, but we will not ask you to climb the ladder and fall into our arms! I promise. 

(I would suggest pausing the video and letting it buffer if it seems slow. It is worth the wait!)

Have a good laugh and if you are interested in the fall study material, click here:  PDF Small Group Study    You can also find a few comments on the 1st & 2nd Peter study from a past blog post here: 1st & 2nd Peter Post  Contact the church or let me know of any questions.
