There are so many reasons I am grateful we live here in Eugene. Most of them are people. We moved down here to be back in the church community that surrounds my alma mater. I am so grateful for my church. I appreciate the freedom in our communirt to live, and love, and learn from one another. I love the grace that comes from everyone acknowledging that we are all broken. I so enjoy bible study with good friends that almost always involves good food and drink. I love women's nights and book groups. I love that a few other alumni and I are leading discussions this summer that are open to the community and revisiting the great questions of western civilization as posed by Plato, Dostovevsky, Kierkegaard, and Ellul. I am so excited for our evolving Family Music Night and knowing that I grapple through parenthood with so many other wise people near by.
Summer grabbed my little point-and-shoot and caught a few shots from the day that I get to share.
