We finished off our Y course tonight. We've been meeting at the local coffee shop which has proved an excellent venue. We weren't too impressed with the overall content and presentation of the course but had such a good bunch of folk that it didn't really matter - they just got stuck into discussing matters of faith. The fellowship was really goood. So much so that we're hoping to get together again for a few weeks in the autumn. We're thinking of hosting a Christian book club, starting with Philip Yancey's "What's so amazing about grace?"
Its been so encouraging to take our discussion group outside the walls of the church and be reminded anew that anywhere can become for us sacred space.
