Koinonia (a.k.a. The Church of the Angry Doubters) slaugh-tered our pigs last weekend. One family has been raising them; the rest of us have been providing food, buying feed and keeping buckets of table scraps which we hand off to the swineherds each week.

- welcomed Mike and Betty (neighbors of Randy and Carolyn) into our fellowship, and
- started teaching (a little) and meditating (mainly) through Romans together.
And we’re continuing to pursue relationships with and look for ways to serve a small urban Anglican monastic community near us (we like them, too!).
