Yesterday, the house was full as usual.

I had to have a long talk with a friend. He was feeling quite upset about his experiences over the last couple of days. He wanted to hide, but when you live in community you can't do that very easily. The greatest issue was that he was using rebellion as the mask to hide behind. We talked for a long time.

In the end brotherhood is knowing that you don't have to hide because you have people there to catch you when you fall. The bible says something about it when it talks about walking in the light.

It's not an easy lesson though.
