The Gathering is full of time with lots of things to do. Your group (and you) will be exhausted at the end of every day. There are also “gap times.” These are times spent waiting…waiting to get into the arena…time in line at a restaurant…time in the hallway at the convention center, or in the hotel lobby…

These times can feel like time wasted. Or, it can be time that is used to build community, to engage in conversation, or to simply have fun. Connect Journal crowd sourced a question to the wider community in our Facebook group: “What are things you have done to turn these gap times into times for your community to grow together?”
