We began with jumping in on a cookout/collaborative trick or treat station that was going on in the neighborhood.. Here, several families in the neighborhood gathered to eat and hang out during the treat or treating time. Think of it as Halloween tailgating. I haven't done this in a really long, long time - so maybe that's normal. Regardless, I've never seen it. Matt tells me that most of these families have been in this neighborhood for 10+ years. They were open and generous, talking freely about life, struggles, and a few PG-13 topics. They brought out the best food - and gave away the best candy. I'm not naive enough to think that this happens all the time, but I impressed that it happened at all.
We went exploring Baltimore today - dreaming, exploring, trying to find out where God may be leading us. No major revelations today; in fact, today raised more questions than answers. What is clear though is that the church is my head embodies what I witnessed during trick or treating today. Today, this is what is making my head spin.
