Goes With The Territory!

On Monday, March 5th, I did something new; something I had not done, before.  I attended a writers' club meeting.

Okay, okay.  That wasn't quite a true statement, because in fact, I do attend a writers' club meeting, monthly.  But that group is in Leamington, as you would know if you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) for any length of time.

This meeting I attended for the first time, was a fairly new group, located right here, in Windsor, where I live!  It's a group I found on Facebook (FB), believe it or not!

We met at the downtown branch of our Windsor Public Library, about 6:45 p.m., in the lower level meeting room.  Apparently, this group will meet bi-weekly.

If my memory serves me correctly, about eight (8) of us met.  Like me, some people attending were there for the first time!  Actually, this made me feel rather comfortable, realizing that I was not alone in feeling somewhat awkward.

This group differs in some ways, from my Leamington group.  For starters, only once with my Leamington group, did we review any writing work anyone created.

Apparently, this is the main focus of my new Windsor writers' group.

In some ways, this is a good thing.  After all, no one is a perfect writer.  Everyone needs some encouragement and reflection on their work, from time to time.  Especially, when it is meant to be positive reinforcement.

In the past, I attended a group like this Windsor group. 

The group I attended previously, met at my church, in our fellowship room, once monthly.  After all, it was a Christian group!

Which brings me to a concern of mine.

I feel comfortable with unsaved people, or people from various backgrounds who may/may not even believe in God.  However, not all people are comfortable with me.

Why?  Because, I am Christian.

I never hide this.  My love for my Lord, Jesus Christ and commitment to working to fulfill God's Great Commission, is rather evident in my life.

One thing I am sure of.  There will never be a time, when anyone I meet with doesn't know I am Christian.  It's so much a part of me, it just comes out... everywhere I go.

I suppose you could say, it goes with the territory!


Until next time...
