networked with others

one of the things i love and deeply value right now is the network of youth pastors/leaders i'm involved with in the greece/rochester area. every month (usually the 2nd tuesday of the month) we gather together for lunch at a panera or pizza joint, etc. and just catch up on life and ministry together. it's one of the most "safe" environments for us to participate in through the "dangerous" world of student ministry. we share updates on our lives personally and professionally, and pray for each other in between lunches. i used to feel that i was too busy for this, but i'm so glad that i jumped in because i now recognize it as a priority. this past tuesday we met and it was so encouraging to see the realness of the others around the table, and the group encouragement to them. i feel so blessed to be a part of this network and thankful to God for allowing us to work together!
