A View from the Junior Gathering

Everyone is here, people who we know and treasure. I have to remind myself: this is FGC, the thing we wait for. We wait for the feeling of being gathered, at home in a place most of us have never been. This is as much a part of me as my meeting at home. The memories made here stand out in the pages of my mind: the laughing, singing, and doing things we’d never thought we’d be led to do, if it were not for the people surrounding us.
