So I suppose that this should have been a part of yesterday's post, but I was just too tired to write last night.
My friend and I met for a late lunch/early dinner at Stoudts. It was a wonderful afternoon...I stayed on a little later than she did, because I had wanted to hear the band that was performing. They were a trio with violin, accordion, guitar, hand held percussion and wonderful voices. I love how comforting bluegrass music is...not to mention they threw in a few Beatles songs and one by Chicago.
In the midst of listening to the band, I got to know some folks sitting near me. And after some conversation with one fellow, I invited him to church. He had talked about how he had been away from church for a while and was in a time of fasting....for health reasons....so I told him when services were. Who knows if and how that seed will take root, but it's been planted.
Who knows where you'll be when you find someone looking for a place for worship, love and God's grace.
The other person I got to know is a Lutheran, attends a Trinity in Lancaster and was just a joy to talk to and with about ministry, youth, college, kids, bee keeping (his wife is a bee keeper) music, history, Europe & England and summer camp. He went to Nawakwa!
What a fun evening. Good music, good food, great conversation....new people to know.
