A Tale of Two Brothers

When I was a freshman or sophomore in high school, I decided that I wanted to learn how to play electric guitar. Being the good big brother I am, I also persuaded my little brother that he should learn to play bass so that we could start a band at some point in the future.

However, fellowship is one of the most important aspects of Christianity—it strengthens faith and provides a community of believers who support each other. How do you make time for both?
