Today, a very good day.
Began with writing and Morning Prayer. Then to 8:30 church, and Sunday School, a great session on today's Gospel and how we take it into the world.
Everywhere I turn in the last few days, I hear these things:
Don't put your hope in things of the world
Empty yourself, that you may be filled, that others may be filled
Leave your pride behind
Following the 11:00 service, the Parish Meeting. Loooking back on a very tough year, with much uncertainty, and grateful to be coming out of it...bloodied, but unbowed, as they say. We have a bright year ahead and much hope for learning the best ways to go forward together as a community of faith.
I was elected delegate to Diocesan Convention, a position I have not held before. We have a Special Convention coming up this year, in the Spring, in addition to the regular Fall one. I am grateful to have this opportunity to represent my parish there.
