Oh Boy! The senior highs all met in the sanctuary to work through the service for Sunday. They are the greatest! Such high spirits, and bright quick minds, and irreverent (in a good way) humor and friendship/good feelings for each other.
Where does that ability to laugh and shout and challenge and move and celebrate go?
It is such a contrast to the more typical churchy type meeting, which is a low motion affair in which I often get the sense that everyone seated so quietly around the table is calculating how much or how little to say to just get the job done and go home.
Joy. That's the word I was looking for. I love the joy. I want the joy.
