Now it is 2010. The beginning of a new decade, and I wonder what it will bring for the Co-op. Our funding has been cut, our numbers are climbing, and people are starting to wonder "are we too comfortable with ourselves?"
Personally I think this is a great place to be. I am hopeful for our community, and hopeful for the people who create it. Our covenant community is meeting this weekend for a visioning retreat (thing). A few of us are headed out to a farm in La Grange Texas to bear this cold cold weather, and come up with new ideas and directions.
I know Advent is over, and it's Epiphany now. But I'm still hoping.
