On Wednesday, the ladies in my bible study small group got together for lunch after we were finished. I think I may have told you about this group before. We meet at the church we attend but it is a non-denominational group so there are women from all different churches and countries. We gather at 9:15 for coffee and a snack and then at 9:30 we sit together and sing and the leader gives us a quick introduction to the lesson. We disburse into our small groups and discuss the lesson. We are studying Colossians so Wednesday we were talking about submission. What a spirited topic! Then around 11:00 we return to the main room together and the speaker presents the lesson. We usually end around 11:30. It’s a lovely time.
My small group has ladies from Chile, US, South Africa, Peru, France, and Columbia. They are a great group of women. So real and authentic. The group has a range of ages so we get to learn from each other. I try to soak up all that I can.
So, for lunch Chrystelle fixed a beet and onion soup. I had never had fresh beets before, but it was a sweet (not overly) soup. The only other ingredients were chicken broth and water. The color was beautiful. We also had a delicious quiche, quinoa salad, fresh rolls, and grapes. Then for dessert we had brownies (I brought-surprise!), lemon pie, and ice cream cookie sandwiches.
