La Fête des Voisins

Last night our church hosted a Fête des Voisins (block party) for our quartier (neighborhood). 

We served tarte flambées, which, at the risk of sounding gauche, are basically French Alsatian Quesadillas. Except they don't have have quesa. We cook them in a special oven with a wood fire in it.

Tarte Flambées are delicious!

We blockaded the street, put up tables and chairs, and invited everyone who lives in the area. People brought drinks, salads, and desserts to share.

My friend, Floriane, played her accordion.

And Jerôme, a new brother in Christ, taught us a folk dance.

It was a chance for the church to bless the neighborhood. We had great fun, laughter, and some meaningful conversations. We were thrilled with how many people came and delighted by the opportunity to show God's love in such a simple but meaningful way.
