On Kittens, Church Retreats, and Neighbors

Another member connecting with her neighbors through Front Porch Forum (this one from the Malletts Bay Neighborhood Forum in Colchester, VT)…

I’ve made a habit of sending a “welcome to the front porch” email to people when they join my neighborhood forum. Most recently, I had a pleasant response and the two of us began emailing back and forth, she is looking for a kitten or cat for a pet, I let her know about a friend who has new kittens she is trying to find homes for. As we exchanged emails I shared about a hike sponsored by a local church and wanted to clarify that I attend a different congregation. Anyway, she emailed back that she is the same denomination and not yet hooked up with a congregation!

So, I’ve invited her and her daughter to join us for all or part of the weekend at our Lake Elmore retreat and we are getting together at a local playground to meet each other in person later this week.

Fun way to make a connection that likely might have never been made! Thank you.
