Up and out of our Charleston (historic district) hotel in time to be at the Church of the Holy Communion for a 10am meeting with tomorrow’s confirmands–five adults, aged 25 to 90. They were gracious enough to spend the better part of two hours with me, as we talked about the shape and contours of Christian discipleship, their commitment to which they will be bearing witness in the morning. Then back to the hotel, from which Brenda and I walked a few blocks to find some lunch (at a brew pub/BBQ place we had visited on each of our last two visits). More walking around with no particular purpose. Then some rest at the hotel, and time for a scheduled phone conversation with our senior seminarian. In the evening, Fr Sanderson and Fiona took us out to dinner. Ironically, we had to drive off the peninsula and into a Mt Pleasant strip mall, owing to the confluence of our visit with Valentine’s Day and a wildlife festival in Charleston.
