Up and out in time to preside and preach the 10am liturgy at Trinity, Jacksonville. I’m getting a reputation there, because something untoward seems to be always associated with my visit (local water supply contaminated, I break and ankle in a fall, frozen pipes result in flooded parish hall). Today it was the refusal of the air conditioners that cool the nave to report for duty. Even so, the Word of God was proclaimed and the Blessed Sacrament duly administered. Then we were home just long enough to pack and head south to an Assemblies of God conference center just south of Carlinville, where the first annual St Michael’s Youth Conference, Diocese of Springfield edition, is now off to a fine start. We’ll be here all week.
