Re: Overcoming loneliness
The matter of connection is what to connect over. There has to be common ground.
In the church setting, that common ground would foundationally be Jesus Himself. Because church is ultimately about Him.
However, on a human level, we also need to connect with people over common interests, with people who regardless of age, "get" us and can relate to us where we can be accepted and understood. Physical age often has zero to do with anything, but what matters more in my experience, is individual maturity both emotionally and spiritually. It's about serving, it's about discipling and being discipled, it's about mentoring and being mentored, etc. It's about basic things like friendships and true fellowship and true human connections.
Go out and plug yourself in. Trust God that He put us all in a body of other believers for the express purpose of us not being lonely and isolated.
Our fellowship is to be with the Lord, of course, but secondarily and no less importantly, with one another.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
