Last night's Alpha wasn't the shining star that some of them have been, but neither was it a nightmare. As we remind ourselves from time to time, this is why the course is 10 weeks and not 1. We had 18 participants. 3 important men were missing because of another meeting, and that threw off the groups some. We hope to get back to our original groups plan next Friday. The new leaders seemed to get on well, and the food (which we were a little worried about) turned out tasty.
