Community

7 Jun

We had an amazing experience of community today.  I joined Education Otherwise, a UK based homeschool association a few weeks ago.  Through this I found out that there is a homeschool group near us which meets once a week for swimming lessons.  We went along for the first time today (there are still 6 more weeks of school in the UK before summer break).  People there were really friendly, welcoming and embracing.  We had a lovely coffee time whilst the children swam.  After swimming a lot of parents get together and go to the park or on a visit somewhere.  We couldn’t go today, but maybe next week.  There was just something about this community which is missing from church.

    How was the group? Here in the US many homeschooling groups are extremely fundamentalist Christian in nature. So I kind of stay away from them. I’m so glad things seem to be going well for you. It sounds wonderful.

    This group wasn’t Christian at all. One lady I spoke to was a Christian, but there was no agenda there, you know. I will see how things go, but I’m aware that some groups are very clicky.
