After I send out my visitation schedule for the coming calendar year sometime each fall, there is a bit of shuffling and re-dealing. As a result, I ended up with no visit scheduled for today. At the same time, our son has an exhibition of his art going on in Chicago, and the show’s opening reception was last night. So we decided to make it an overnight. This morning I got to sit in a pew at St Paul’s-by-the Lake, Chicago. It was a privilege to worship in that devout and astonishingly ethnically diverse parish. Afterward I met for a while with the rector and a Nashotah House seminarian who is from St Paul’s.
