Small Group Time: Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

Last night was the kick-off to my church's fall women's ministry/small group sessions for the year, and I couldn't be happier that I went.

Here's my small group for the year.
If you're an introvert like me, you know that sometimes the most appealing way to spend an evening is at home in your pajamas, nose in a good book or binge-watching your favorite TV show. This is why it's always a battle for me when it comes time to decide whether I want to join a small group at church.

To be honest, most years I've opted out. In 2014-15, I joined a fall/spring group and a summer group—and was so glad I went!—but then I skipped 2015-16 altogether.

This year, I've been somewhat isolated because for the past six months I've been between jobs, job-hunting from home. So it's going to be a really important step for me to have a regular commitment that gets me out of the house one evening a week.

And guess what else? When we were getting to know each other at the kick-off last night, we discovered that many of us are introverts. So we're in the same boat.

If you are on the fence about joining a group, whether it's a book club, small group or writer's circle, I highly recommend you give it a shot. You never know just how your life will expand and flourish as a result.

As for me, I can't wait to see what lies in store for our group as we dive into the book of Colossians together.
