Plunge Presentation

I didn't blog it yesterday-- didn't have time to blog anything-- but my plunge group gave its class presentation in the morning. We had an initial scare with a technological issue-- the video port on my iBook will not accomodate the larger plug that comes off the Seabury Lounge projector. Fortunately, there are far geekier folks than I in our class, and Dave and Mark were able to do an end run that allowed the display to work as planned.

Overall, what we had to say was very well recieved. This may surprise you, but there was some puzzlement over the fact that our plunge parish is a generally healthy, functioning, Christian community. Not perfect, no; but not torn, or especially conflicted. So many of us have seen that sort of dysfunction in congregations to which we've belonged, as well as in myriad case studies we've discussed in our classes, that we've been somewhat conditioned to expect it. It's pleasantly disconcerting to find a place, and a parish family, where that's not currently true.

In other words, dear Philippians: y'all are living out the Gospel, all things considered, in some wonderful ways, and it showed. Thanks for sharing that with us.
