This Saturday felt like old times. Mikayla and I had the chance to attend the weekly “Smörgasbord.” Smörgasbord is a discussion group that one of the English teacher hosts at his house on Saturday mornings. He makes pancakes, tea, and coffee, and we sit around talking about different Christian topics that may be controversial or difficult to discuss. Some examples of things we discuss are: must Christians attend church every Sunday, what is women’s role in the church, and should euthanasia be an accepted practice.
This past weekend we discussed the fear of hell and the want of heaven and whether or not those two things should be reason we follow God. It was a great time to reconnect with friends on a spiritual level.
I also had the opportunity to partake in the 10th grade girls’ Community Group Supper. I caught up with old friends and met some new people, too. After the dinner we had a time of prayer and devotion for all those who would be leaving.
