Tim here with a quick update — most of the community is out on fall break service trips as we speak!
I’m in scenic Clinton, IA, sharing life in a L’Arche community, up late making some praxis spiral bread made with some flour we bought from a windmill across the river made from local grain. It smells delicious (I thank the honey and cinnamon I snuck in).
Each day, we get to share meals, songs and stories with the core members here, and it has been a fantastic, life-giving adventure thus far. I’m waking up at 6 tomorrow so I might have a different opinion soon, we’ll see…
Each of the 17 hosts sites will be bringing different stories and experiences back home, and out dialogue for the next week will be focused on sharing and living out the service trip experience
So that’s it from here for now.
Keep checking back soon because we’ll have community members sharing some of their stories here!
