More Monopoly in the morning–a completion of the drubbing by my nine-year-old granddaughter that began last night. Fortunately for my ego, she and her sister and mother were the last of our holiday house guests, and they set a course back toward there Minnesota home around 2:15. Brenda and I then began the slow process of putting the house back into its just-the-two-of-us mode of being. I leave at 0-dark-thirty tomorrow morning for a day trip (believe it or not) to Oklahoma City for the funeral of a colleague bishop, Bruce MacPherson, with whom it was my honor to serve on the Living Church Foundation board, and as a Communion Partner. The plan is for me to arrive back at STL late Saturday night ahead of my Sunday visit to St Bartholomew’s, Granite City.
