Once upon a time we had a supper club. Our kids were young and most of us had one or no children and it was SO fun! If you’ve read Jen Hatmaker’s book “For the Love” (so good, go get this NOW), she talks about supper clubs and the joy they bring in the value of sharing life with friends—not to mention the amazeballs food and recipes as a bonus. The main thing is the richness in friendship and I will admit that was an enormously blessed time in our lives with tremendous fruit to show as we rode that roller-coaster of life in the age of the littles and beyond.
Fast forward many, many moons and we’ve moved and lived a thousand different seasons and we MISS that supper club. Those deep friendships, adult conversations and NEW recipes!!!! About a year ago, we started a supper club again. Small. 3 couples, added a 4th. We managed to meet about every 6 weeks or so (it is CUHRAZYAY trying to get calendars together!!!) and it was good. And then this spring, we were back to 3 couples and then fizzed right on out for summer. But tonight….we resurrect the club…..#supperclubof4. We are all working today so it’s going to be simple: chicken and dumplings, brie and pears and dessert. Our house. After work. Kids all have plans. Because you have to make that effort in relationships. Friendships, marriage, families. It takes effort.
Proverbs 18:24 A man of too many friends comes to ruin, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
