We estimate between 28 and 40 of you were able to join us for our very first Zoom Fellowship Time after virtual worship. It was wonderful to catch up with so many of you and learn how and what you are doing.
Everyone wanted to know how Richard was managing without his Starbucks – he had been using the drive through but sadly it is no more. “Et tu, Starbucks”
We heard tales of art lessons from a grandchild over Face Time and even saw the finished project.; lunch in the tree-house with a young grandchild over Face Time after a garden tour; re-discovered treasure like favourite coffee cups; gardening adventures with tomatoe seed plantings - ensuring our food supply and the crocheting of so many squares that the afghan is now ominous.
No one regaled us with stories of painting the house or doing laundry and vacuuming except to say that those chores had been handed out as assignments. Taking walks was popular with a nod to fellow traversers about respecting physical distance. Playing cribbage on the computer with a granddaughter had become routine and a new family hobby of raising honey bees was shared with great enthusiasm over the research on all the things that bees do – did you know they can see colours like blue and yellow?
The Zoom buzzing continued for almost an hour. Just another way that Knox is staying connected while distant.
