Chad and I are helping launch a new Journey Group at CCC for young marrieds. Our original thought was that the group would largely be comprised of people we knew as singles who are now married. However, the 7 couples we ended up with at our house last night were all people we’d never met before. After the requisite awkward “go around the circle and say your names” thing we hashed out all the details of where/when the group would meet.
The process of making new friends is always kind of overwhelming for me. How do you go from “where do you work again?” and “what’s your husband’s name?” to the “OMG I can’t believe I haven’t told you about…” and real and hard stuff of life and faith and marriage? It just takes time, I know. But I get sorta impatient sometimes. Imagine that.
Regardless, I’m excited about the group and can’t wait to see how we learn and grow together.
