Our Small Group

“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.”
C.S. Lewis

I love this picture. No it's not perfect in its composition or in technical aspects. But  it shows our small group from church in what a small group should be like.
We are here, true Minnesotans in our lawn chairs and relaxed summer wardrobe. We gather not in our Sunday bests but in our comfortable clothes. Because we have moved past the stages of need to impress one another.
I love this picture because we are not all together in conversation or in teaching. We are here, scattered and connecting. The important talks come at times like these, the words of encouragement and hope to one another.
What this picture doesn't show is the mass of kids running around the grounds. But in the not showing it is good. We trust. We trust our own and those around them. We trust the adults to help in the raising. This is our village.
We've cried, rejoiced and screamed with these people and yet they are still here. Some are new and some we've known for years. But we all still gather for the same purpose. To do this thing we call life together.
We are blessed.
