So we had planned to have ‘gross-out’ this last Sunday, but as I was preparing for a back-up plan with our yucky weather, I really felt like rain or shine, this Sunday we needed to gather to speak directly about spiritual gifts and have communion together. I’m not sure what it was, but the change in plans was worth it. We actually made our bread and juice for our little service which was new for most of them-the Mann twins rocked out the bread and everyone got a turn to knead the dough and smash grapes. As the bread was baking we read through a list of spiritual gifts and went around and told others what we thought they were gifted with-kind of like an encouragement circle. We let them wrestle with areas where they would like to be stronger and the effort it might take to get there spiritually. We ended with warm bread dipped in our grapejuice, prayed it out, and went our separate ways-it was a great start to the week!!!
