Gina [Clio, MI]

[04.07]

Hi, welcome to our virtual coffee shop. Pull up a chair, take the load of your feet. Let's chat.  

So who are you, where you from, what do you do in life?
Gina; Clio, MI. Mom, coffee slinger, writer

Can I get you a drink? Cappuccino, earl grey, dandelion and burdock, pale ale...?
Very dry Chai cappuccino this week!

Would you like a doughnut or pastry to go with that?
Ah, no thanks.

So, if you had to describe the church/project/experiment/thingy you are currently involved with in one sentence, what would that sentence be?
Defining and living true community

Are you an instigator? / new recruit? / have absolutely no recollection of how you got involved?
My husband and friends say I’m an instigator, but I really don’t remember how I came to be here!

What do you value most about being part of it?
The opportunity to really BE what I’ve said I am for a long, long time.

What excites you most about it?
The limitless possibilities!

Has anyone ever turned up out of the blue not knowing what to expect? What did they say?
“Ah, are you guys Christians or not?”

Three words that describe your attitude to 'being church' in the big wide world:
Learn; Breath; Do

Three words that DON'T:
Program; structure; status quo

What's the big secret you're itching to share with everyone?
I think I’ve finally found out what “church” is suppose to be – and it doesn’t look anything like “they” told me it would!

What would your 'emerging church survival kit' contain?
My fellow community sojourners; a lot of grace and mercy; an never-ending list of questions and a little bit of rum!

Anything else you'd like to share with us before you have to rush off?
Thanks for the forum!

Thanks! Good to see you, have a good day!
