Today, I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama Blog writing for 5 minutes on the topic:
We're a small band of believers. We like to call ourselves, "The Remnant."

We are what's left from a growing thriving church that fell upon hard times. A hard fall that left us reeling even years later. Successive hard leaders who perhaps did not know how to love the remnant.
Membership that dwindled down.
During this dwindling process, people told me I should leave, too. It was a tempting thought. Of course, I'd like to belong to a bigger fellowship. More opportunities. More spiritual blessings to be poured into me.
Or so I thought.
Still, somehow, I could never feel the leading of the Lord to leave the remnant. And so I stayed. Stayed and threw myself into serving.
Because, isn't that what Jesus did?
He had many followers who fell away yet He stayed with His original community, His little band of 12 disciples. And they changed the world.
Your community doesn't have to be big to impact the world. You just impact each others lives in the little world to which you've been called.
