Last night’s WEAVE was filled with Sarah’s fantastic marinara sauces (one with meat and one with mushrooms) made from tomatoes picked out of her own garden that day. mmmm, she made dinner awesome.
It was also filled with lively discussion of many kinds–from what kids should put in their mouths (Henry was eating a blue balloon) to “what’s your favorite sound” and “what would you put on your tombstone?” (questions from those Meet The Ricklepickles interviews!). It seems that Silence was many people’s favorite sound, at least in the midst of WEAVE chaos! And Teri shared her favorite joke-tombstone, “I told you I was sick.”
John’s class finished up their discussion of the 7 guidelines Reformed (like Presbyterians) Christians use when reading Scripture. There was animated (and sometimes heated!) conversation about how we interpret life in light of scripture, particularly when thinking of Old Testament passages that seem to condone war and violence and portray a vengeful and violent God, and also how we think about Scripture and Christian ethics in the “minefield” (John’s word) of life.
Next week we’ll be having a Colombian dinner and Ann will be telling us about her most recent trip to Colombia–six weeks this summer as an accompanier helping people who have been living with threats against them because of their work for human rights and justice. Join us anytime after 5.45 (dinner buffet starts) for an interesting and tasty South American adventure!
