The morning was productive in the ministry-related sense. Created a developed outline for my Advent III sermon (St Luke’s, Springfield). Took a substantive phone call from a priest of the diocese. The remainder of the day required my attention to Brenda’s health: first dental (a serious and time-consuming procedure happened), then a substantive meeting with her memory care specialist. On now to Thanksgiving and the day after out in the suburbs with my family-of-origin and offspring and offspring’s offspring. Catch you back in this space sometime over the weekend.
