Love gave us new people to nurture: we were Heeyun Lee’s host parents, glad to meet his friends and have him meet ours; my childcare grandma times brought smiles with the Ausema girls and McClellan boys. DCCRC grew in faith and outreach as Pastor Meg Jenista joined Minister of Worship and Music Katie Roelofs. Jim retired in December and we spent a week with Dave, Charissa and newborn Tyler Nicole Gray in Boulder. In March we met Jean and sons at DeFauw’s in Ohio; brought Judah to Greenbelt and DC one last time. Nigerian Stephen Enada was our guest in July for the first of many advocacy meetings. Creator called me to Stephanie Miracle’s dance class, to Greenbelt Climate Action Peer Support Group and on 13 miles of the Walk for our Grandchildren. Joy drew us to Loft Cottage at Castleman River for our 15th anniversary in August, and back to Ashland and Boulder for family fun in September.
