The cat’s out of the bag: there was an announcement on Sunday about the new home group we’ll be starting. Our friend Jan asked me about the new Bible study and I said, “It’s not going to be a Bible study — though we will be looking at the Bible.” Oh, she replied, then it’s a healing group? “It’s not going to be a healing group — though we will be praying for healing for each other.” I’m afraid I left her a bit confused, because she approached Kay next, saying, “Your husband was a bit cryptic.” Kay did better by saying something more along the lines of our prepared answer, Our group is about being real with each other, being real with God, and letting God be real with us. And having a lot of fun doing it. I think Kay said something about taking off our masks.
But even our prepared answer leaves me unsatisfied, because as I said before, our vision is multi-faceted. So I stayed up last night making a new web page that just jumps in and describes several of those facets as “some things that are important to us”. …So there you go, Jan, I hope this is more helpful than my cryptic response!
