Community and Reconciliation

Despite my website being "down" I've still be sharing stories.

The first was a deeply personal story that I wrote for Grace Table's series called The Hospitality of Reconciliation. Grace Table is a beautiful website I hope you will check out if you are unfamiliar with it.

My story was called The Bitter and the Sweet and offers the hope of healing in family relationships. It is a reminder that "perhaps it's never too late to bind up old wounds. To start the work of healing them. To not let past generations of bitterness become our own. There will be scars, but maybe that's okay too."

The second story was for For the Family and is about my attempt to create community in my own back yard. So many of us crave more connection with other people but don't know where to find it. The thing is, we will often find others desire the same thing we do, it just takes someone taking the initiative to do the inviting.

Creating Community Right Where You Are is about how I learned to take the initiative and not wait for perfect.

What ways do you find yourself creating community? I'd love to hear!
