Laughter

I just want to remind us all that a big part of being a community is the fun we have together.

Don't forget to plan in some play time.

It was great being with the Hamilton congregation Saturday afternoon and evening for a goal-setting workshop. One of the things they appreciate most about each other is the ability to enjoy each other's company.

They'd started up earlier in the day with a community car wash and barbeque. Despite periods of torrential rain (it's been that kind of weekend here in Southern Ontario!) they spent lots of time laughing and connecting with the neighbours. No signs of discouragement here. They'll do it again.

There was a great sense of optimism and anticipation of the future that lies ahead of them -- as well as appreciation for those who went before. There's lots of laughter there to sweeten the mix.

  1. Trying to catch up after two weeks away. This piece makes me smile inside. I am so pleased to read about the sense of community in this congregation. As Bryce Taylor always says in his Sionito presentations, "The World Needs More Community!"
