As you may know Jay and I began ardently church hunting when we arrived in NYC, and it had been quite the process. It wasn’t until one day after a work out that one girl took a risk and asked Jay to come to church that we finally found a place to call home. Beyond a church, what we gained was one of the most exceptionally amazing group of likeminded people that have become like our New York City family. They have really turned around my perspective on living in New York and helped quell some of the homesickness (just a touch though. I still miss all you islanders don’t you worry).
By growing in this new church I have also come to realize that although I would deem myself a Christian from birth, that really my depth of understanding and grasp of the bible is not nearly as diverse as I crave it to be. As such, two of those aforementioned friends have come along side me to study the bible. Beyond being incredible friends and being utterly gorgeous, they are also so wise and loving. I have so much respect for both of these women. They don’t balk as my misunderstandings, and answer all my questions with open hearts and non judgmental minds. I am so fortunate to walk through this journey with them.
That being said, this past Tuesday we met on Elaina’s rooftop and since I am still in my photography class I carted along my camera to do some of my “homework” at the same time. These images are the result of a beautiful evening studying an incredible book with unbelievably wonderful women.
