Men's Group

Tonight was a busy evening so today's post is late and will be sparse.

I'd been looking forward to tonight's men's group.
For over 2 yrs. now our small men's group has been consistently meeting weekly for a time of fellowship and discussion.  The group was an outgrowth of many of the men coming together to participate in a drama presentation during the Easter season; a recreation of the famous DaVinci's Last Supper painting.

The group kicked off by reading together, 'Get Real: A Spiritual Journey for Men', by Derek Maul.  This book grounded the group and set the course for other book discussions.  If you have a men's group at your church I highly recommend this book. 

Tonight was a special night for our group...no deep discussion, just some downtime for fellowship.  A couple men in the group worked on getting and then preparing some nice fresh New England style clam chowder. What a treat!  Thanks to Ralph for getting them and Ed for cooking them up!  Great eats were had by all.

The friendship and commitment these men have to coming together weekly is great.  We have varied backgrounds and opinions on all sorts of topics and issues, but we always learn something from one another.  We have a great respect for each other and enjoy the gatherings.  It's a great way for us to recharge and unwind; whether it's with an in depth discussion of a spiritual nature or talkin' shop about football or work we all have a great time.


PS- Son Gabriel turned 8 wks. old today.  He had a great visit yesterday with his Nana and Poppa.
