Two Stewards to Share – Lewise and Marjory shared about their current journeys.
Soul Talk – Various Stewards shared during Soul Talk.
Christmas celebration – After dinner at a festively decorated table (thanks to Cynthia), we shared stories that meant Christmas to us and, after each of us wrote a blessing on a gift tag, played a game of trying to identify which among us wrote which blessing, both activities organized by Cynthia. Great thanks to Cynthia for her ongoing willingness to organize this annual celebration and for the cleverness and fun with which she does it.
