There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

Dinners for 10!

As some of your have heard Alina announce a couple of Sundays ago, the 20+ class is trying to start the “Dinner for 10” program (for the lack of a better word). For those not familiar with the concept, “Dinner for 10” simply means that on a regular (monthly, for example) basis you get together with ten other people, and have dinner at someone’s home. This is a great way to cultivate relationships within our community, since you end up eating and talking to someone you might not interact with on regular occasions. It also can present an excellent opportunity to practice hospitality and to extend grace to others in our church family (or even outside of it), as you could (as a group) decide to include in your gatherings students from SMU’s RUF program, international students, etc. – your imagination is the limit. The great thing about this program is that it is you that make it what you want it to be.

Here are the promised questions regarding the “Dinner for 10” groups:

1) Would you be interested in being a part of the group? Each group will last for about 6 months.

2) If you are interested, what days of the week would work best for you? Choose two nights (with the indication of their preferability) between Thursday night, Friday, or Saturday.

3) Finally, would you be willing to host the dinner and/or be a leader of your group? Being a leader is easy: all you would have to do is to get in touch with your host/s, or pick a restaurant, and then send out an evite to your members. Being a host would mean that you’d provide a your place for a gathering and provide a main course, with the rest of the group bringing sides. There could be several hosts in a group.
