*family meeting notes 1/6/23
The ministry of presence.
THATS what our family is getting so good at.
Just listening and caring.
People can ask for advice if they want it right?
I’ll never forget the story that Rick Warren told about how his small group at church acted the night that Rick’s son killed himself. They were just there, and they all had kind of an meal and extended wake–like a holy sleepover?
Not much talking.
Just the ministry of presence.
Animals are really good at that too.
My dogs have helped me more than ever since I’ve been sick. They are just there, and they never stop loving me.
