Third Sunday after the Epiphany

Across the alley for personal devotions and Morning Prayer in the cathedral right around 0700. I then broke camp in my office and was on the road west to Jacksonville at 0815, with a stop at Hardee’s for a chicken biscuit. Met at 0900 for some “finishing” catechesis with a group of three young people who were being presented for confirmation at Trinity Church. Presided, preached, and confirmed at the regular 1000 liturgy. Attendance was well above average, according to the rector, Fr Zach Brooks, under whose leadership the parish seems to be joining a couple of others in the diocese whose median age is trending in a favorable direction. Visited with folks at a “finger food” reception, then hit the road back to Springfield and on to Chicago at 1145. Arrived four hours later, grateful once again for the availability of audio books, which make the miles just fly by.
