This morning I returned to the office after my trip to Mississippi. There is a lot to do as this will be my last Sunday at Small Church and I begin my new job on Monday. Packing is by no means the least of it, and there is an exit interview and many other closing exercises, so to speak.
I am exchanging e-mails with the Head Deacon about plans for Sunday morning. I assure him that the entire family will be present and this is his e-mail reply–
"Are Sam and Molly coming, too?"
I hope you’ll excuse me for a moment; I seem to have something in my eye…
