It was amazing, and a lot of fun

We had the first meeting of the new women's group finally today.  While not everyone who said they would be there showed, there were still 11 of us.  The eleven are strong women who can get things done.

While we snacked - after all what's a meeting without food, and Robyn brought mimosas! - we talked about the group and what we saw as important.  It was clearly decided that the fellowship is important, and that service to the church and the community was equally important.

Pastor came in to say hello, and we convinced him to sit and enjoy some food.  So he did.  I think he was very impressed by the attitude of the group wanting fellowship, but more importantly - wanting to be of service.  We want to be the nurturing heart of the congregation.

We set the next meeting, and we have some definite ideas of where we are heading.  What a great bunch of women.  There was a little aside where there may be splinter groups from this  main group who will meet occasionally - like perhaps a crafting group.  Yea!  We are off and rolling.

Fantastic! That's how it's supposed to be. At the risk of sounding churchy, the Holy Spirit was definitely among you today!
