going before us

Heather and I spent a couple days at the Catholic Worker house in Champaign this week and both of us really liked it. It's a well-established house with lots of volunteers and support from the surrounding community. And I think we could really make a contribution there, especially in helping to build a stronger core community of full-time, live-in volunteers who could support each other and think creatively together. Also, it's not too far from here, so we could maintain contact with friends at Reba Place.

Most of all, the good fit (and the way we practically stumbled into it) made me feel more strongly that God is going before us to prepare a way. I really need that right now.
