Barbecue

Saturday night the south side had its fourth and final barbecue of the summer. The Indy branch came (they made the food happen!) as well as many south siders and the missionaries. It's a blessing to see neighbors coming together, happening because we live here. One man from the south side, who regularly goes to men's group and often to Sunday night meetings commented to me, "this is great, people are starting to recognize us in this neighborhood (us meaning the missionaries and the south siders who are joining us). A few years ago no one got together and now look at how many people are here at this barbecue!" He was really excited to see the neighborhood, well actually the people in the neighborhood, changing, even in the small and gradual ways that it is. "The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood." Praise God, Jesus is here in the south side!
