Herd Jumpers

Humans are inherently pack animals.  I think it’s bred into our souls to walk together in groups.  Hillary Clinton says it takes a village to raise a child, and even Jesus chose twelve disciples to hang with.  We all huddle together as families, and units, and choose folks that think and eat and pray like we do.  When we stray too far from the herd, we are weak and vulnerable.  Wolves surround us and start closing in.  It’s safer to stay hunkered down in the middle.

And yet safe is boring.  So I start breaking free. 

I’m writing at (in)courage today, an amazing place where faith and community collide.  You can check out the full article HERE.

    I’m reading this nodding my head! You hit the nail right on the head for me. I’ve come to a place in my life and walk with Christ that I’m ok with “here hopping”, not content with the continual struggle to fit. I kinda like being that I don’t have to be anyone but me. Blessings to you!
