To me, the most touching and personal aspect of chapter TWO is defined on page 29. The story of Moses and Joshua (Exodus 17: 9-14), the story of Mom extending her arms up to God in prayer, the fellow hikers supporting her arms as she prayed, these are all very vivid examples of community. That is the heart of G2! Yes we gather to hike and enjoy nature. But most of all, as members of the body of Christ, we are a community of believers. Not only we are to offer our prayers on behalf of others, we are also to humbly seek the prayers and support of our community when the need is present. There are times when we need a "Joshua" to hold our tired arms while they are extended to heaven in prayer. What are your thoughts?
