Building a Fellowship is an art form of hidden sacrifice and private devotion.
Building a Firm is strategic, exhausting and filled with collateral damage.
I was once a part of a world wide Fellowship and I thought nothing of sacrifice and devotion towards those I considered brothers and sisters in the faith.
The transition between Fellowship & Firm was subtle and insidious when brother would turn against brother under the guise of loyalty to the course and the spirit of sacrifice and devotion seemed lost forever.
In recent years I’ve been privileged to revisit Fellowship with the most unlikely people. One by one they are appearing and our hearts are being knit in Fellowship.
I can only say, God is faithful, God is true and has not forgotten us.
Stay true to conscience and they’ll come from everywhere wanting the liberty you have fought for in the secret place.
