We had one of those nights at Gathering 242. By that I mean that there were a lot of folks that were absent for various reasons, like babies getting born (welcome, Josiah!!) retreats and day trips and people out of the country. Nevertheless, we had a great time. The six of us enjoyed taco salad for supper then, after clean-up we settled in for a time of music and sharing. As always, Ben humbly carried us into worship and song. Later we talked about abiding. What does it mean to abide in the Lord and for Him to abide in us? Sweet time. We broke up around 9pm. Next week will be Gary R.’s last week as he goes off to start a training school in Sisters, OR. (called “Summit” coincidentally). We’re going to pray for him. Blessings!
