how is espresso going?

We’re pioneering a new congregation here at Opawa – every Tuesday, 8 pm, church foyer. (The journey is blogged here, here and here). It is based around sofas, and we
– gather ritually
– discuss
– ritually end

It’s scarey and its exciting. Often I get asked how it is going. Here is some participant feedback:
I have started going to Expresso/Espresso at Opawa. It is a place where we can eat, have a coffee and discuss, mull over some of the questions of life we have as we travel on our journey towards or with God. There is a lovely mix of people with lots of different stories to tell that have made them who they are. It has been nice to see familiar faces and get to know new ones. It has been nice to feel safe, to have my own opinions and to be able to express these whilst listening to others and seeing the world through their little window.

I am enjoying it!! and last night I was able to take a very special friend of mine too. She is related to me but she is so much more than that – she is truely my friend. I am writing about her in the hope she will read this and feel special as a result of me blogging about her. Thank you to Steve, Lynne, Paul & Ann for taking the risk of starting Espresso and allowing us the chance to attend and grow together. Thank you for starting to restore my faith in people – Karen.
