A Tapestry of Faith by Rev. Justin Gung, Minister of Families & Young Adults When
A Tapestry of Faith by Rev. Justin Gung, Minister of Families & Young Adults
A Tapestry of Faith
by Rev. Justin Gung, Minister of Families & Young Adults

When I was in high school, I would countdown the hours until Friday afternoon. The hands of the clock never seemed to move fast enough! When the bell dismissed the masses from school, a handful of other teenage guys and I would run to our cars and drive straight to the home of our youth leader. There we would spend the rest of the afternoon in his living room. We would eat and laugh together. We would study Scripture and pray together. When a classmate of ours was killed in a car accident, we grieved together. When spring arrived, we took our dates to the prom together. When graduation came, we celebrated together. In short, we simply "did life" together and, to this day, the guys in that small group are dear friends of mine.

That small group established a lifelong pattern for me. Wherever I happened to be in lifecollege, graduate school, or beyondI made it both a point and priority to seek fellowship with a handful of other Christian men. (In fact, a member of my small group from seminary, Kent McKeever, is the one who first introduced me to Woodmont Christian Church and paved the way for my joining staff.) It has been in these small groups that the words of Psalm 133:1 have rung truest in my life"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!"

For several months, in this column for The Spire, I have featured just some of the small groups that make this church so special. For example, we have talked about the Fellowship Dinner Groups, the Women's Prayer Group, the Circles of Prayer, the Heavenly Helpers, the Super Somebodies, Nashville Tools for Schools, and Restore Ministries small groups. This month, I want to turn the spotlight on some of the small groups that are just for men and some of them that just for women.

There are also several small groups for men. On Monday afternoon, the self-described "geezers" of the church meet in the Board Room. If you look around the room, you will see some of Woodmont's most distinguished church members. Ostensibly, the geezers meet to discuss a theological bookNearing Home by Billy Graham, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, and othersbut they meet just as much to bond with each other in fellowship. To join, you don't have to have gray hair; you just have to be old at heart!

If "old at heart" does not describe you, fear not! On Wednesday, a number of mensome single, many with young children, others middle-aged, and a few retiredmeet early in the morning. They can attest that there is no better way to start the day than with Christian fellowship, an excursion into the pages of Scripture, and a warm biscuit. Each of these small groups provides the opportunity to connect with others on a personal level, learn about the Lord together, and serve together in his kingdom. In many ways, they hearken back two thousand years to another small group of men that changed the world forever.

Friends: Male or female, it does not matter. What matters is Christian communitydeep and real and true. What matters is that your life is woven together with the lives of others, forming a beautiful tapestry of faith. A single thread does not amount to much. It is lonely, lifeless, and limp. One can even sense its yearning to fulfill the purpose for which it was made, namely, to be inextricably connected with others. On the other hand, when many threads are deeply connected with each other, the strength, warmth, and beauty of the fabric produced is a great good. So, seize the opportunity to weave yourself into Woodmont's beautiful tapestry of faith. Join a small group today!

Ladies first. For decades, Christian Women's Fellowship (C.W.F.) has been the largest organization of women within the church. These women are some of the church's most dedicated members. The women of C.W.F. meet altogether on the first Tuesday of each month, and then in small groupsor circlesonce per month. I have had the privilege of meeting with several of these circles (I'm meeting with another one this week!) and I am continually impressed. In these small groups, women form close relationships, share table fellowship, study the Bible, pray together, participate in missions, and care for each other in times of need.

in missions, and care for each other in times of need. It used to be said

It used to be said that behind every good man is a good woman; well, I say that behind every strong church are a number of strong women! Scripture tells of many women who served side-by-side Christ and the apostlesLydia, Priscilla, Joanna, Susanna, and others. Personally, I doubt they had anything on the women of C.W.F. In so many ways, the church has been built by their labor.

Poverty and Being Generous by Tallu Quinn, TNFP Director & Outreach Minister " And the
Poverty and Being Generous by Tallu Quinn, TNFP Director & Outreach Minister
Poverty and Being Generous
by Tallu Quinn, TNFP Director & Outreach Minister

"And the one who had much did not have too much. And the one who had little did not have too little." Exodus 16:18

When I was in seminary, I had the privilege of working with

a professor named Janet who became my mentor. She is one of

the most faithful and prophetic people I know. One afternoon, near the date of my graduation, she came over to my apartment for lunch. While we were eating, she said "What are you going to do?" I assumed her question referred to my post-graduation plans. At the time I was doing some private catering for a few families on the Upper West Side, so I told her I was considering continuing that work or trying to expand it. She stopped me in the middle of my long response and said, "No, Tallu, I mean what are you going to do about poverty?"

Any of us reading the papers and listening to the news knows that the gap between rich and poor in our country is only widening, and Nashville is not exempt from this growing disparity. There are too many among us who are unemployed or underemployed, who can't find affordable housing or buy healthy food for their families. And yet, there are thousands of homes across the country that sit vacant, there is more than enough food for everyone, and there is so much work that needs doing to fix this breaking, broken world.

I am always moved by the story in the Torah about the Israelites wandering in the wilderness with no food to eat. When God sends manna down from heaven, they are filled with the fear that there will not be enough and try to save it by hoarding it. But whatever they attempt to save turns sour and begins to rot. This story in Exodus reminds us of what happens when we try to hoard God's abundant blessings instead of share them.

When do you think we will be more concerned with others around us having enough than with making sure we ourselves have plenty? Like many of you, my life is brimming with the blessings of family, of education, of relationships, of plenty. I am grateful for the work of The Nashville Food Project because it gives me a daily chance to practice sharing what I have been given, a practice that rescues me from a life of plenty. I still feel convicted by Janet's question every day and am grateful for you, who show me how to be generous with these blessings that are like bread falling from the sky.

Grace and Peace, tallu

Gain and Loss
by Michael Graham, Director of Music Ministry
At the end of his freshman year, Franklin
Willis auditioned for the choral music
department of Nashville School of the Arts and

I accepted him. It took no time at all to realize that God had

placed into my care a vein of gold. His parents (two precious jewels) and I worked together with him to dig through music

theory, music history and much vocal music. As a high school senior, what emerged from that mine was something to behold.

Franklin will be leaving us at the end of June. He and his wife, Erica, are returning to Memphis to complete her education. Although we will miss him terribly, we understand that precious metals are meant to be shared. God's hand is on this young man and I am thankful that He allowed me a small part in presenting him to the world. God bless Franklin and Erica in their new endeavors.

~Michael

He went to the University of Memphis for further polishing, finishing with a Masters degree in choral music. He spent a year teaching in Memphis and returned to Nashville, where he has sparkled as the choral director of Oliver Middle School and shone at WCC as a bass soloist and section leader.
