ELEVEN girls, one dinner, endless chatter. I am thankful that we were finally able to gather everyone to meet up over dinner and discuss the direction of our fellowship. In this secular society where everyone may have a million and one commitments on their plate, I was glad in seeing everyone’s bright and happy faces.
Although it is difficult to talk about religion in a public place, being able to share our worries, our fears, our struggles – it may have made one feel vulnerable, but above all, endearing. To be able to understand where everyone’s journey in our Lord has been was important. We have within our group: girls whom had grew up within the Church, have found peace and faith with our Father, question his existence, believe Him to be the one – but only to an extent where other’s opinions and uncertainties are not questioned, nor are theirs. There were differing stances on the perspective of God, the Church, and also the concept of faith.
