Who are “your people”? The kind of people with whom you feel an immediate kinship? Your connection may be based on shared interests, personality, upbringing, experiences, vocation, goals, or philosophy of life. Seth Godin talks in terms of “tribes.”
Being with your people is both relaxing and rejuvenating. You can be yourself. You feel understood. There is a synergy of connection. You leave encouraged, nourished, inspired, your emotional tank refilled.
While ministry is not about being only with your people, make sure you are intentional about connecting with them from time to time, for they are vital to the ongoing nourishment of your heart, mind, and soul.
