Up, organized, packed, and out of the house around 10:45. Brief errand at the office before heading south to the airport in St Louis. Retrieved our clergy conference presenters–actor Tom Bair and his wife, Bishop Gerry Wolf–and brought them to Toddhall. Got everybody oriented and settled. Evening Prayer, dinner, and then Tom’s rather stunning one-man show, narrating the entire gospel of Mark in just ove two hours, with a 15 minute intermission. It is amazing to engage scripture in that way, rather than the piecemeal fashion we usually do.
