Last night we gathered with friends that are following down this windy and joyous path of communal living. We discussed struggles, dreams, questions, and details. We realized we were different in places we assumed overlap and we overlapped in so many ways that we were all pleasantly surprised by. Food, gardening, kids, and HIV prevention were a few overlaps that seemed to emerge. Hospitality is the never-ending value to be wrestled with and explored and we spent a good amount of time sharing stories or the good, the bad, and the ugly. Advice was given and received. Questions were asked and answers were pondered.
It felt good and right to share our collective experience this way and I am excited about what fruit may come of this dialogue. May God breathe life into all that we do.
