I have come to relish in the joy and treasure the beauty of the community that has grown here at Barberry.
I can go outside at just about any hour of any day and run into someone I know. All I have to do is go outside with a football and I can almost guarantee that there is someone i can toss a ball around with.
I went outside yesterday even after I got home from work and started doing just this. Within 5 minutes there were 6 other kids and a handful of adults tossing around a football and just having a great time together. Over the course of the hour that ensued 3 other adults walked by with whom I would step away from the game and just chat and catch up.
I am amazed at how all of this has grown within 6 months with the infusion of God's love compelling us to live in love and compassion.

The Joy and Beauty of Community
I just posted a quick update over at the Barberrian Villagers blog that I wanted to share with you all: The Joy and Beauty of Community.
