Here’s a quick follow-up post.
Not everything in October sucked. Meghan and I had our first experience hosting a life (small) group in our home with a majority of people we had never met or hung out with before. We have greatly enjoyed getting to know each member of our group (which has already grown to 15 people!) and sharing in a time of connecting and growing through a six-week “starter” study on how we are to love and serve others/each other. It’s been great to hear people’s stories and how God is truly working in their lives right now. After the six weeks, all the new group leaders in our church had the option of going back to the life groups they came from, however, Meghan and I felt compelled to continue leading our group indefinitely. We’re trying to figure out what our next study will be, but we are excited for what God is going to do with the group and in our own lives moving forward!
There’s at least one thing about November that I’m not so happy about, and that’s my jury duty summons. I have to call each night this entire week to see if I have to make an appearance downtown at the city/county building the following day. A co-worker of mine just recently received a summons herself, but her group was never called to come in, so I’m hoping for a similar result this week. My group number is 30 and today they called for groups 1-6 and 91 to show up tomorrow morning. Not sure what to make of that randomness. I’m praying that this responsibility will pass over me this time around.
