This past Sunday evening, I was finally able to make the trek over to Wendy and Scott Reynolds’ home for an Affirmation potluck. What a fun time! We all gathered around their table, ate chili, talked, and laughed. I find that at every Affirmation event I have been to, despite everyone’s different backgrounds, we come together in a spirit of common understanding. This was no different.
When everyone was finished eating, Geoff McGrath took charge and we all moved to the Reynolds’ family room to do a little future planning. Justin and Matt Keyes (brothers) stepped right up to head up the next two events: a holiday party on December 7 at a more central Seattle location (to be decided), and an event at the North Seattle Stake Center in January or February.
A big thank-you to the Wendy and Scott for hosting all of us and to Geoff for making sure we planned more gatherings. I’m excited for the future of our small, but growing Affirmation group here in Seattle.
