Concentrated teamwork

This evening on Arsenal Street in St Louis we learned something about contending for our neighbors.

We worked together in two teams to stack these red Solo cups into a pyramid using a rubber band stretched by five strands of ribbon. Not easy. But both teams succeeded!

Melissa and Hunt, Major Gail, Elysia, John S. are pleased

We then discussed what lessons we learned about listening, submerging, inviting and contending. These are four of the six postures we have been working on from Thin Places by Jon Huckins and Rob Yackley. Thin Places is an approach of six postures for creating and practicing missional community.

We are still figuring out what took place. What we discovered about being a community which works together. Being in mission. Together.
