It's been a tough week in Bordeaux for the Francophone project.
Firstly our preferred meeting place said they did not want to rent a room to a church.
Then our second-best said they could not rent us a room for complicated reasons.
Then another meeting place said they did not want to rent to us either, after seeing our website.
This last is a tea-room that organises and hosts esoteric workshops on subjects including hypnosis, yoga and sacred numerology. I was a little hesitant about using their space because I feared that people would tar us with the same brush, but still the gospel can compete with the more unusual belief-systems of the world. But no. We were refused. Go figure.
The search goes on.
