Another busy weekend - Jesus Army Life, Day 96

Another busy weekend, but all I want to comment on is one part of it. The bit where we did nothing but sit around in the lounge enjoying the autumnal atmosphere outside and a sense of togetherness within.

Every chair in the lounge was taken up with resident family and friends chatting quietly, snoozing, reading, the occasional mass of teenage war-tribe marching through the room. It was a very pleasant time and all too rare in this season of activity, but to those who are finding White Stone to be 'home' it spoke mellow volumes of the value of this Kingdom-oasis we have come to know.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."

Matthew 13:45-46
