Hanging Out

30 Jun

We had a great time last night. We hosted a BBQ at our house for some of our friends from church. Jonathan and I were actually too emotionally and physically drained from the week we’ve just had to really soak up the evening, but it was good. Kids were running around our house and the garden chasing each other, and parents were chilled and relaxed. There was no program, no routine to get through, it was just community. Two of our friends who came are expecting babies within the next three weeks. It was great to rally around them, and continue to support and offer them advice as they prepare to bring new life into the world.

When we host things like this I’m always left thinking about Jesus and the disciples, the way of life they led, the community they must have had. The disciples were centre of something really special, really loving, totally of God, despite some of their gaffs that we read about in the bible, I wonder if they knew?

    It sounds like a great evening. It’s the kind of community that brings life.
