I think some of those boundaries made a difference for people who aren't used to being around "religious folks." I was happy to see that there were quite a few in that category. A good chunk of our Alpha group came (and stayed to chat when everyone else had gone) and also Don F! I gave him an invitation yesterday but was still pleasantly shocked when he was the first one in the door. The town social worker, who helps us with our charity cases but is openly not interested in our spiritual teaching, showed up as well. It's my prayer that some of the new folks will have a chance to experience both Christian Community and God through these meetings. We'll see.
