Christian BoyLove Forum #64773
This post is part of our "Purpose Driven Life" book study, the first official Christian Boylove Forum book study. If you would like to join in, do not be discouraged by the thought that it's too late. The book is designed to be read one chapter per day but we only study one chapter every Monday and Thursday in this forum, so if you read it at the book's recommended pace, you will catch up with us very quickly. If you do not own the book, you can read the first few chapters for free here: http://www.purposedrivenlife.com/en-US/AboutUs/AboutTheBook/FirstSevenChapters.htm while you look for the book in your local bookstores or wait for it to arrive from an online merchant.
This chapter introduced us to the idea that we were created to live as a community, not as individuals. Although there doesn't seem to be much here that is unique to us as Christian BLs, I can't help but think of the prevalence of BLs claiming to be Christian who are disconnected from the body of Christ. As we delve deeper into this chapter, I'd invite those who are disconnected to reevaluate their situation.
to participate actively in the book study, feel free to respond to this post or to any of the discussion questions Cat or anyone else posts below. You don't necessarily need to respond to what is written on this post, you may prefer instead to talk about the parts of the chapter that spoke to you even if it wasn't something mentioned on this post. You may also pose your own discussion questions.
