Stacy Lowe back with you again to share one of my favorite things about P31 OBS (and believe me, that says a lot, because I love it ALL)! What is that thing, you may wonder? COMMUNITY.
Google defines community as:
a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals
And how does it define fellowship?
friendly association, especially with people who share one's interests
In other words, people we can share life with! And while we may not have a physical address where we all meet, we DO have one on the web and it’s found right here on our blog.
Study Leader Katrina Wylie is here to tell you more!
Thank you, Stacy! You’re so right. We CAN find fellowship right here on our blog.
When I got started with #P31OBS, I was seeking the type of community Stacy defined for us above. I never would’ve guessed, though, I could find that online. But boy was I excited when I DID.
Every time I read through the blog comments, I found myself thinking, “Hey, me too!” I couldn’t believe so many ladies all over the world shared the same feelings and struggles as me. It was eye-opening! And comforting. But that was just the beginning!
Pretty soon, I found myself replying to others' comments. Then some of them began replying back. And, before I knew it, I felt so encouraged and connected in a deeper way to the studies and the women here.
Well guess what? That community is here for YOU, too!
So, if you need a place to connect in community for Seamless (and beyond), Stacy and I invite you to join us here. We’d love to hear from you because THAT’S how we grow a feeling of fellowship — one OBSer connecting with another, one comment, one reply at a time.
We can’t wait to grow that with you!
-Stacy and Kat
Getting to Know Each Other:
Let’s get started growing community today by sharing what drew us to the study and one thing we want this community to know about us! After you’ve shared, perhaps reply to a few whom you relate to.
Four lucky commenters will win a copy of Seamless! Winners will be notified by a reply to their blog comment.
P.S. Craving even more community? Our Facebook Community Group may be just the thing! With discussion posts each Monday through Friday of the study, our private Facebook group is your chance to dig in deeper as we learn and grow together. If that sounds like your kind of place, we’d love for you to join us there, too! There are no small groups for the Seamless study so this is a great option instead!
