Fellowship can be. . .
a private time--just God and you
baring your soul to Him whoís true;
gathering to read God-breathed words
then sharing with others what youíve heard.

Fellowship can be. . .
a welcoming smile, a friendly wave
by acts of kindness you can save;
loving each other, His divine command
a language all people can understand.

Fellowship can be. . .
a testimony given for anotherís gain
a confidence whispered from buried pain;
bonding together through family ties
in Christís love youíre Christianized.

Fellowship is. . .
what the disciples shared long ago
with a friend, Jesus they came to know,
mentoring and mirroring lessons learned
teaching grace is free, itís never earned.

Fellowship is . .
sticking together, uniting as one
encouraging others, thereís souls to be won;
shining your lights for others to see
living for Jesus wholeheartedly.

Fellowship is . . .
brightening a world darkened by sin
through acts of kindness again and again;
collective efforts that are Spirit led
nourishing hearts which need to be fed.

John 15:15-17 (NLT) . . .Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didnít choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. I command you to love each other.

Many definitions of fellowship described in your beautiful poem. I've had the benefit of being blessed by many of these forms of fellowship, too. Nicely written.

One can't get much more on topic than this. I enjoyed this immensely.
