the advent gathering

I’ve just said goodbye to the people that came to our 6th or 7th gathering – I lose count.
we took Advent as our theme.
The house has been noisy as people have been able to meet up again.
There has been laughter and shouting as the children have played together.
There has been silence and calm as we have lit candles and watched them float on water as we mentally hand things over to God.
There has been contemplation as we consider again the Christmas story.
There has been conversation and delight as we have eaten and drunk together.

I’m not sure where we are all going as a group – but this afternoon we were all able to meet God where we were, whether we are 5, or 55 so I guess something is happening.
