las estacas.

Sometimes the best church services take place poolside. 
The kind with water soaked song sheets laid alongside the pool ledge where the kinds hang on and sing along.  Where other people check us out from nearby towels or float past in bright pink inflatable rings. Where groups of sunburnt should lean in to hear the teaching. Where we cheer for our friends sharing their stories and being baptized. 

It's a good reminder that the church isn't contained to a building. It's people. 
And on days like this, church looks like celebrating baptisms with a couple chorus repeats of that song we love and canon balls and ultimate frisbee. 

more of what "church" looks like in the city. . .
