People need community - Full stop - Isolation is a civic disease.
We have been part of a group of like-minded folk who choose to gather ... for the sake of rich community. We share life's challenges over a glass of wine and celebrate each others passions, pray, cry and laugh.
It works because the gathering rotates through six homes, so no pressure on any individual to shoulder a clean house and all that jaz.
Every home has its own flavour . There is NO agenda but to live, love and to grow and do life.
We all live in within 15 minutes so travel time is not a barrier. The key is: each person has a home to become a vehicle for community. There is no sign ups or need to continue or to be there .. but we come because we recognize we are better for the whole of us - together.
Amazing what a cup of char can start and all it takes is an sms to gather.
If that's you then put the jug on and invite someone to your home-s. It may be the very thing your soul is hungry for..
