OEF Council Meeting January 3-5, 2017

Imagine this scene:

One sunny winter day in Winter Park, Florida,
3 Franciscans walk into Smokey Joe’s BBQ Shack.

The casual observer observes:
Avid hiker-woman,
plaid shirt, jeans, sturdy hiking boots.
Slim professional musical man,
slacks, neatly-pressed white shirt, red tie.
Silver-haired woman,
  colorful Disney-turista-style tunic, leggings, sandals.

Later joined by smiling woman, head clean-shaven,
  jeans, simple brown t-shirt
  stating subtly and literally:
  “Let us see what Love can do.”

Missing in this bright moment:
Tall man of meaningful tattoos,
gentle man of Oregon who will later join these 4 by skype.
