Hanging out with friends and neighbors tonight

A few months ago, some friends of ours started meeting together every other Saturday night. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to hang out with them. But, tonight, we will!

Last year about this time, we were meeting with these friends every Saturday night, and even hosted in our house a few times. We see some of these friends daily, and some of them we see weekly. But, we haven’t been able to hang out with this week’s hosts in a long time. Plus, they’re our neighbors. So, we’re looking forward to spending time with them.

What will we do? Well, I know that we’ll eat together. We’ll probably also pray together and talk about Scripture together. What do they call this meeting? I don’t know. Does it matter?

    I love this post, as it brings to mind some things I have learned since first reading your blog. I have learned to “be instant in season and out”, and to always have something to share when called upon or given the opportunity. This only happens when I am actively seeking Him. I have received greater emphasis on the importance of community.

    The community I meet with eats dinner together monthly, and it is amazing the power of something seemingly so simple. I don’t know if I read this here or elsewhere, that communion is so much more than eating bread and drinking wine, and reading the famous passage from scripture. Communion now to me is the fellowship and the meal itself. I hope you had a great time.

    I agree that “what you call it” is immaterial. It just is.
