There were many games we all played as children in circles-holding hands. As long as you were holding hands, your back was always subject to attack, but when you were inside the circle with all the others holding hands around you---you were safe. It was fun to be part of the circle and it was fun to be inside the circle---the one place you did not want to be was alone -outside of the circle.
Our Small Group operates in a like manner. We all form a circle and occasionally a member needs more protection and we all join hands and surround that member to protect them. Small groups are a wonderful blessing. The place that you can put it all out and still not feel judged. We live life side by side with our hands held tight---keeping the circle together and forming a union of one. I can't imagine living my life outside of that precious circle.
BLESS BE THE TIE THAT BINDS &
MAY THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN
