|Bill & Ted at the Circle K|
I had a great group. We shared deeply, listened attentively, and broke open our experiences and hopes for religious life. During the check out of one of our last circle conversations, one of my circle members (in her mid 60s) said that when she received her name tag with her assignment to "Circle K," she immediately thought of the gas station. "And I need a little bit of gas for religious life," she said smiling. The rest of the women in my circle went around and said how much they appreciated everyone in Circle K. By the time it was my turn to talk, I had to confess that I'd put us in Circle K for a reason! I explained the pop culture reference, and told them that I thought good things would be afoot in Circle K. A nice moment, courtesy of Bill & Ted (and God).
