Second Annual Love Feast

dinner at the love feast

What is a love feast, you might ask. That's a good question. The purpose of a love feast is for us, as staff, to bless our students in the discipleship school. We prepare a nice dinner and serve them. Then we all have fun seeing everyone perform for the talent show! The weather prevented us from having it outside (our first choice) but our living room did just fine as a dining hall and stage!

The Menu

greek salad with an amazing dressing prepared by the one and only, Brittany
homemade wheat bread, fresh out of the oven
steaks grilled to perfection by my awesome husband
broccoli and cheese casserole by none other than Lynn Hodge
and to top it all off...strawberry shortcake with fresh cream baked by me

The Talent Line-Up

So as you can see, we had lots of fun Saturday night! The photos don't even do justice to all the talent and laughs that were shared! I think these times are a vital part of being a healthy team and living as a community of people working together.

I may not know these people but it was just as fun looking at the photos and reading your notes. If I ever go to visit for sure it will have to be one of the days when you guys are having your love feast. IT is so great that you guys serve the students with the meal too.

Looks like FUN!!

... though it hasn't been quite ten years since you've played the flute. I'd say it's been 9 years and 9 months. :) Seriously, though, where was Mishea??
