I indulged myself in a leisurely morning. Breakfast, newspaper, fiddling with email and Facebook. Morning Prayer in my easy chair. Then a long and brisk walk, mostly around the beautiful Washington Park. Then it was time to pack for an overnight, enjoy a bowl of soup, and head out the door with Brenda at 12:30 for points south. We arrived at the community center in Carterville just ahead of the 4:30 start time for a celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of Fr Tim and Carol Goodman. It was my honor to preside at the renewal of their vows, and then there was a nice party, with lots of stories, good food, and dancing. What a treat to be included in such things.
