Good Times, Community, and Beer
So, angie was wondering what I was doing up after midnight last night responding to her comment. So here it is. I confess. After youth, I was out with a couple of the other college group persons over at Marfields drinking. There you have it. Oh and I might as well bring yall down with me...Bob, EZ, Justin, Kim (she was drinking Dr. Pepper), and myself. Now you know it, we're all a bunch of alchies, and I better not be the only one at the AA meetings!
No, not really. We've been sorta making this effort to strive for community amongst ourselves. What I mean by that is become actively involved in eachothers lives, more than seeing eachother at church and College Group occasionally during the week.
So, we went over to marfields, which is an irish pub, and were hoping to get a bight to eat, have a beer or two, and just talk about what God's doing in our lives. And that's just what we did...minus the eating, cause their kitchen was closed. So anyway, we let Dave (the owner) pick the beer, and we all sat around having good times. Our conversation ranged from suicide, to living in community, to just what's going on in our lives. I was talking with Dave Griffith the other day, and he mentioned that we don't do enough together as believers just to have fun. Because no matter what we do, we will live as Christians, and be a light to those around us, so it really didn't matter what we did. He's making this push to organize a Texas Hold 'Em night down at the church...I laughed at first and told him it was a good pipe dream, but I think it might actually be a possibility. We'll see. So back to last night, we each had two beers, minus kim, and then we went over to taco bell for some comida (food in spanish, for all you unejimacated people), and continued to talk there. We had a really good time just hanging out and lovin on eachother, and I know some of us just needed to get out of the house.
Well, time to go buy rakes for our servant evangelism project today. You guys can pray that the kids will enjoy serving, and that people will be touched by God's love, and allow us to pray for them, and that God would answer those prayers.
