Tea Time and Small Group
I'm trying my hand at leading a women's small group for the first time. We meet here at my home on Wednesday evenings when my kids have gone to bed and Phillip is gone for his small group. I'm loving it so far! I've had several wonderful examples to learn from in the past few years (Katherine in Iowa, Francine in Florida). There are six of us meeting right now, but I hope for it to grow! We're studying the book of James.
This tea set is what I use for our refreshment. The tea pot holds a whole pot of hot water and we take turns making a snack: decadent brownies, chocolate dipped strawberries, miniature muffins are the treats enjoyed so far. Aunt Mary gave this tea set to my family years ago (I believe she bought it in Vietnam); my mom is graciously lending it to me right now. I love it because it's just a little fancy, but very useful for our small group.
