Looking at your pics, seems like you might be into hiking? Lots of great places around Spokane and here in the Yakima area too. We love to do stuff like that (when we get the time)! So glad to see you here and hope that you can connect with others.
Maybe not pics of you reading, no offense! But I once put together a slide show of the covers of books I was recommending at the time. Then if other people had read them we had something in common! Hiking is fun too . . . but not with Gavers. He once got us lost and we ended up doing way more millage than prepared for!
Thank you for the comment on my post. I don't know of any people meeting together on the basis I described, though I have a number of Christian friends in the greater Spokane area with whom to share spiritual things and pray essentially on a spontaneous basis. All the believers I know here, with only very exceptions (maybe 4), are institutional church goers. There is one man in Deer Park whom I met on the phone through this website, over the same article, but we have not met in person yet, though I hope to very soon. It is just very hard to find people to meet together with in the Lord with no expectations or protocols and simply for what He would want us to do or share.
Usually people don't feel they've properly "done church" unless certain things are done, but then those very things become formulas and pattersn that carry onlives of their own.
One person I have become very close to, whom I first met on simple church, talk about these things and scripture all the time. She's virtually the only person I know who is completely outside of organized Christianity and even "the house church movement" but has a very strong and deep life in Christ. But she lives in Texas.
Was looking at the Washington Members today, they've nearly doubled in the last few months! But the cool thing was that there seems to be a number of new people from the greater Spokane area. You can find them buy clicking on "members" under the "community" tab and running a search for people in your area. Of course, maybe you already know them!
Thanks for meeting us for fellowship this eve at Starbucks. What a great conversation about our mutual experience in Honduras, low-key evangelism, Spanish, Living for Jesus, etc. Mellanie and I were very blessed by your companionship and just being one in the Spirit with you. Look forward to meeting with you again soon.
BTW, we're doing a bluegrass CHRIST-mas concert at the Moose Murals in Loon Lake tomorrow night at 7pm if you' re interested and up to a drive.
