Talking about LivingRoom

15 November, 2005 11:18 PM

Tonight I went along with one of the LivingRoom groups to visit another church - Eltham Baptist - to talk about LivingRoom and the past two and a half years of doing community in the way we've been exploring it.

It was a great night of meeting new people - some great food - and sharing.

One of the things that talking about LivingRoom always does to me is to force me (us) to think through what we do, why we do it that way, who we are and how things are going.

It also always reminds me just how hard it is to put into words what your community is and how it operates.

All the questions we were asked tonight were asked graciously, insightfully and with a lot of thought and love - however sometimes it's just hard to find words to describe LivingRoom (I guess it would be hard to describe any church in an hour).

All in all though I'm really excited about the opportunity to connect with a more established larger church.

One of the things I've heard numerous newer emerging churches saying lately is that they feel they'd like to interact with other churches more - so tonight was fun and refreshing.

Looong Weekend

Today was Melbourne Cup Day so we decided to take a long weekend and headed up to Daylesford for a few days with a few of our friends from LivingRoom.

It was really wonderful to get out and have some sunshine (it's been a long Winter - which looks like it's finally broken). I really enjoyed getting my new digital camera out and re-engaging my photographic passions. I posted just a handful of the shots I took on my Flickr account if you're interested.
