My new friend Tracy has short blue hair, multiple tattoos, peg piercings, and wears goth-styled clothing. Her three children also follow this style. Who would think we’d have anything in common?!? Apparently, we’ve got plenty!
Tracy has been attending our church for about 5 months now along with her Army husband. I’ve been chatty with her off and on. She doesn’t seem to mind my Amish-tendencies one bit. She is from Phoenix, where I had lived for 4 years. She loves her kids, writing stories, natural foods, and Jesus. Thats a good place to start…
On Resurrection Sunday I announced that I would be starting a Ladies’ small group to meet twice a month for Bible study and fellowship. One glitch: I needed a hostess! Well, when I mentioned it, Tracy shot her hand up in the air to volunteer. She seems rather eager to meet new people. So, now you have a conservative Anabaptist/Quakerly sort and a goth lady leading and hosting a Bible study.
Who would have thought? I’m rather excited about the prospect. I wonder if anyone else will show up?
