Because of the Coronavirus, it looks like we’ll all be a little more sequestered for the time being. And if you’re like most people, you’ll spend much of that time binge-watching Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, etc. (Or, maybe you’re the person who loves watching funny cat videos on YouTube.) When you’re finished binge-watching, consider this: How can you make the most of this situation?
What if I told you that in the middle of this world-wide concern about the Coronavirus, God has given a gift to you—a window of time with your family and closest friends. And right now, none of us know how long this will last.
Where can you start in making the most of this opportunity?
Step #1 of The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus is Time With (TW) people. Think about it. You can’t make disciples like Jesus if you don’t strategically invest time together with family and friends. Under normal circumstances, we’re all so busy, we don’t have time to be with people. All of a sudden, our various gatherings are being canceled. Many of us now have unexpected time together—at least for the moment.
As I write this, Stacy and I are at Dave and Rennie Garda’s house for two days enjoying their friendship, sharing Scripture, praying, drinking great coffee, sharing meals, and working together on Cadre stuff. We are having so much fun too. Normally we’re out doing disciplemaking training experiences around the country on weekends. And it’s not just us. We just called home to our three daughters to check in. They are playing a board game. On Saturday morning—what?
How long will this window of opportunity for engaging in disciplemaking friendships with family and friends last? No one really knows. But let’s agree to NOT be like funny man Dustin Nickerson:
All that to ask this:
How can you seize this window of opportunity for disciplemaking friendships?
To that end, we’d like to do something fun and practical especially for our friends like you who track with Cadre Missionaries. Here’s a FREE four-page PDF download that you can print and share with your family and friends.
