The most humbling experience.
Community is not meant to be the college-isolation of same-aged piers. Community is engaging with the minds of those at every stage of life, and building each other outrageously high when those minds are of the same cloth. When the young man grows close to the old, every stage of life is robbed of its unknown shadow, and given the trust of navigated waters, and adventures. And life becomes exciting, rather than a dreadful sand slipping through young hands, afraid of every passing through.
Everyone around the fire tonight was of the same quilt, a quilt God is weaving and showed me his pattern, even just a glimpse. Those moments when you step out from the fire light and see yourself in front of you, and are aware that you are alive and being fed. And that will feed my faith for some time.
