You Are Not Alone...

Today, in EY we had a session entitled "One is a lonely number" It was handled by our dear German trained (or German fed ~ cause he is looking kinda pale and plumb, too much sausage perhaps) brother Ricky Tan. On the surface, we would think that this is a session for the singles or newly made singles or the not singles wanting to be single again...but as we go through the session, we realised that it was not 'that' kind of talk.

We were reminded that we can be in a crowd and yet still be alone. Loneliness can sort of creep up on you without you knowing. Borrowing a thought from today's session, Being alone is not the same as being lonely. We could be surrounded by friends, family and even our spouse and yet we can still feel lonely.

Indeed looking around us in EY. We have good times, great fun and fellowship but are there among us who are hurting, who are feeling alone at this moment? Sometimes, in our enthusiasm to have fun, to 'get down and party' we forget, we overlook some who are among us. We thought that everything was ok because there are laughters. We thought everything was fine because there are no tears. We are wrong. For those of you whom we have accidentally overlooked, slighted, we are indeed sorry. As a group, a fellowship, we are here for one another. We are to help one another to grow, to laugh and to cry together. So let us start over.

Another thing that I have told some of you...You were never, are never and will never be alone. God is with us, though we may fail you, though we may overlooked you, God will never fail you. He will never overlooked you.

PS: Ricky, thanks for the session. So when are you free?
