This was very good. You caught me off guard there at the end. This is exactly how home groups are supposed to minister to one another. Thank you for sharing!

Your story is a beautiful testimony to the restoring power of God! We can always count on the Lord to want to bring us back to Him in love and grace, and it's good to know His agents on earth are willing to do the same.

This is what it is all about. Churches built on home groups that provide such richness of fellowship that wayward members, longing for genuine Christian love, return in repentance - and receive unconditional forgiveness and restoration in response.

I loved this. I loved how you showed someone like Trish could fall into sin (of her own making). But God is always faithful to lead us back to the narrow path. Beautiful.

Wow, I liked how this turned out. I enjoyed watching this play out, especially how the group rallied around Trish, in spite of it all, it was good. After reading, the title fits well.
*Also loved the song at the end. One of my favorites.

This is an awesome story of God's mercy working through His willing, merciful people: a 'home run'!
