Eyes Wide Open Background

Eyes — and Hearts — Wide Open

When nine Friends in Norman, Oklahoma, took on the challenge of sponsoring an Eyes Wide Open exhibit at Oklahoma University, it opened their eyes – to the possibility of turning their worship group into a full-fledged meeting.

“The display did not bond us,” says Jim Warram, one of the Friends.  “It revealed that we were already bonded.”

John and Gail Fletcher, members of the group, had seen the exhibit several years earlier at the Gathering in Blacksburg, Virginia.
