 We became acquainted with Jeremy last fall.  He had contacted the house concerning the viability of staying with us for a semester as part of a formal internship thru OCC.  After an initial meeting, some prayer over the situation, and a little discernment amongst the group; we were happy to let Jeremy know that he was welcome to stay with us.

This semester Jeremy is hoping to learn hands-on what it means to live in community; we are humbly hoping to provide more than just a crash course.  In the coming months each of the house members will be taking turns in discussing various topics that we, the Lotus House, feel are important to living in community such as reconciliation, hospitality, etc.  We hope that thru this experience Jeremy will discover what he hopes to learn thru community and that all involved will be drawn closer to Christ.
