On Labor Day week-end was the first monthly community week-end. Time for us to acknowledge our new configuration for the year with Laurence, Marie-Noëlle, Claire and Blandine in Toronto, and Nathalie in Paris and later in Boston.
To do so, we had (among other things):
- A “Grace Night” to share about how God granted each of us personally his love and his graces throughout the summertime
- The “Time that God is giving us“: a look on the calendar of the year written on huge post-it on the wall to acknowledge our reality incarnated in time and choose realistically what we feel called to live together: invitations, sharing…
- A discernment on Christmas time including a 3-day recollection in a monastery and the visit of a General Councillor, led with Nathalie through Skype: thanks to the modern communication channels!
- And a visit to the Exhibition on Saturday evening to feel what so many Torontonians are experiencing every year! What a discovery for two of us!
