Up and out of the Hilton Garden, Champaign in time to preside and preach at Emmanuel’s regular 0800 liturgy, meet with confirmands between services; preside, preach, and confirm at 1000, kibbutz at coffee hour, and enjoy lunch with the rector and her husband. We were back home around 4:00. Still feeling puny, but I managed to power through it all, for which I am grateful, because … what a joy this ministry is. It energizes and sustains me. But I can’t say anything about being productive once we got home. Pretty much vegged with Amazon TV.
