A Few Random Thoughts...

  • e3 - The School of Congregational Development for The United Methodist Church in New England - was awesome! Great music, great speakers, great workshops, great fellowship! But I'm so glad it's over... I slept until after 10:00 this morning. It was good to have some time to relax today.

  • It was so great to have my friend David Abbott staying here over the weekend. We were up too late at night catching up, but it was great to have that time.

  • All Saints Sunday worship was great. Folks came forward and lit candles to celebrate the saints in their lives. Indeed, we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses!

  • I had lunch today with another pastor in the Portland area who reached out and suggested we get together. It's wonderful to be serving in this city where collegial relationships are abundant and so rich.

  • Rachel and I raked leaves today, too. Okay, I raked, while she played around in them and giggled. She loves the way they sound underfoot. So do I.

  • I went to a watercolor class sponsored by Spiral Arts tonight. I used to create art pretty regularly... even was an art major for one semester as a first-year college student... but it's been a long time. It was awesome!

  • On Wednesday evening, we'll have our second gathering of those who are part of New Light. Please pray for this ministry!

  • This coming weekend both my parents and Sara's Dad will be visiting. How cool is that?

  • How did it get to be November already anyway?
