It is always hard, when you move to a new place, to start that whole process of making new friends. We have been in this new church for about six months now, and though we only moved across the city and we still see friends we have made since we arrived in Australia, there is still the hard work of getting to know the new congregation.
Part of the problem is that everyone is so busy nowadays. Trying to find a time when a group can get together is difficult. But I have to keep my heart open and keep reaching out, offering times to get together and just working with those who turn up.
One of the ways I like to get to know people is through 'Choc 'n' Chat' evenings, where I invite a group of women into our home, make some truffles, and we just sit around the table, eat chocolate, and get to know each other.
