A New Beginning

July 2010 has been a huge month for us! Chris started a new job with The Well Community Church as the Campus Pastor for the North campus. Though it wasn't something we pursued, God has clearly shown us that this is where He wanted us to be at this time in our lives. We have been so blessed by this community so far! Chris has dove right in and is loving the relationships he is discovering along the way!
At the same time as starting the new job, we moved to a cohousing community in north Fresno. It is an intentional community where neighbors live closely, with the purpose of sharing lives and experiences. We enjoy common meals together weekly (ranging form 25-35 people in attendance) and have monthly community meetings. We are truly enjoying living out our values in this eco-friendly, green community. We feel like it is a real opportunity for us also to share our faith amongst a diverse group of people.
In August my parents, Henry & Eleanor, will be joining us in this 5brm condo. We are excited to have them here with us and for them to enjoy this peaceful atmosphere.
One thing I have been loving is that one of our neighbors, Rebecca and Bryan, have spent the last year planting an extensive organic garden. I've been going out the past few mornings and returning with a bounty of fresh veggies. Pictures will follow.
