lonely

Posted by slykwyk on March 3, 2010

Kara and I were talking the other day about being here in Chapel Hill and our move.

We both agreed starting a church is lonely.

We left a great group of friends in Northern Virginia and we could meet up with Kara’s family in 10 minutes any day we wanted to.  In Chapel Hill, we know no one.  Zilch.  Zero.  In most situations when you move you are at least starting a new job and can make some quick connections.  I’m the only employee and you can only talk to yourself for so long!

However, we kind of like the loneliness.  We  love what it forces us to do – connect in our community, get involved locally, and to build new friendships.  Plus, we know there is a support system all around us and a God who is leading us forward.  Yeah, it might be ‘lonely’ around here, but we wouldn’t change it for the world because of what is to come!
