Two parties were held at State Street Church. This is still part of our "Kentucky" weekend, though the church is just North of the border in Indiana. The first party was for SIL and a fellow graduate on Friday. Then on Sunday, they had a time of more food and fellowship after the ordination. What a nice bunch of people! We had a good time with them, and the kids enjoyed the spacious lawn on the side of the hill that the church was built upon.


*At Friday's graduation party, I finally tried Mrs. Craver's cup game. It's a rhythmic passing game she learned from some young girls at camp. You go faster and faster until contestants can't keep up. It was an excellent ice-breaker with people we didn't really know yet. I already miss them.


I am glad that D1 & SIL made this their home church while they were living down there.

Is that the same cup game that Rich Mullins would do onstage to his Screendoor song? We played that some in college and usually ended up laughing til we cried.

I love church suppers! Such fun and good food.

Craver Vii said...

Yes!! Thank you, AMM; that's it exactly:

Dot, I didn't say much about the food, for space considerations, but mmmmmm... that was all good!

Craver Vii said...

Oh, and now the link is up so you can see Rich Mullins do the cup game. (Thanks again, AMM.)

It looks like it was the perfect weekend all the way around - and now you'll have a free place to stay in Florida!!

As to Bomhoeffer, I think he meant it in terms of all we need pertaining to life and godliness, the things that have eternal significance.

Say for example, counseling someone about their marriage...:)
