(And a perfect reminder of how beautiful fellowship can be.)

Together, we mulled over Paula Rhinehart’s sentiment: Everything that is really real about God has come to me in the gap between what I hoped or expected and the different kind of wonderful God had in mind.

I found myself resonating deeply with the real-life parables & paradoxes we discussed.  Over & above it all, God’s absolute sovereignty and nearness became the resounding Amen.

Besides, we ate caramel apples & laughed really hard.  So yeah; it was the all-out getaway.
