A day of traveling and connecting. Up and out in time to catch the 8:11 AM departure from Springfield nonstop to Dallas. Picked up my rental car and drove to the Highland Park neighborhood, venue of the official hotel for the consecration of the next Bishop of Dallas. Checked in, got settled, grab some lunch, and otherwise relaxed a bit. Met with some of my Communion Partners colleagues over an ongoing project that were involved with. Caught the shuttle to the big Methodist Church in downtown Dallas where tomorrow’s consecration will take place, in order to attend a rehearsal. (I am honored to be one of the co-consecrators). Then, back to the hotel for our reception, followed by a dinner for bishops an out-of-town guests.
