A quick joke: How do you get a group of Christians quiet?
A: Ask for prayer requests!
Seriously, though, what happens? The “leader”, be they the teacher, the small group leader, the pastor, when the question is asked why do the crickets take over and we all look down? It’s as if we’ve asked for the dirtiest secret we have, and we need to share it. So we face our feet and hope that someone else talks.
Here’s the privilege: that we get to pray for one another which is really caring for each other in the most unique way. The is a way that only Christians can care for each other. So, why do we turn silent? Why do we make this the opportunity to make sure the shoes are tied, or our socks match?
Why do you share? Why don’t you share? I’m kinda curious. I mean, I got my idea why I do or don’t, but why don’t you?
