Today after worship/annual meeting (yes, an all-in-one Sunday morning extravaganza, in which we place the work we do in the context of who we are as a church), I'm rushing off to the airport so I can spend some days here:
Well, okay, quite a bit of the days are actually spent in a conference room that looks just like any other conference room that is also used as a storage room. But still, the knowledge that the oasis is just a few decks away makes a big difference! As does the constant cleaning of my room, the many food options (none of which involve me cleaning up afterward!), the amazing friends new and old, and the 80 degree sunshine.
This year we're learning about writing, specifically writing prayers, as a spiritual practice. Can't wait.
See you in a week.
