Blogger Meet-Ups, New Church

Up, Up and Away

Three Gals

(Songbird, Ruby, Mary Beth after dinner on Friday night.)

After a busy and wonderful visit, Mary Beth and I are off to the City By the Sea International Jetport, where I will NOT be checking my bag, though she is still undecided.

Mary Beth will be home later today, and I will be in Atlanta to attend the UCC's New Church Leadership Institute. I'm bringing my laptop along, so I hope to have time to check in along the way.

Blogging continues to bring many wonderful people into my life. Mary Beth is a sister to me now; Ruby came back into my life in part because of my blog. I'm grateful for this new way of creating and expanding community. My experience with RevGalBlogPals feels like a new way of being the Body of Christ, and I hope my efforts will prove to be a good preparation for New Church work, too.

More soon,

Blogger Meet-Ups

Festival of Bloggers

The Festival of Bloggers, Meeting Up All Around Me, continues today.

I have Mary Beth sitting on my couch with her laptop, and we spent yesterday with Ruby, and we got to meet Rev. Dr. Mom and The Kid for lunch, and today we're having brunch with God_Guurrlll and tomorrow we're going to Auntie Knickers' birthday party.

Everyone got to meet Molly, the blogging dog.

I believe today's festivities may include yarn, which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I must also finish my sermon.

But first I need to become fully awake.

Mary Beth keeps smiling, even though her bag arrived here some 32 hours after she did.

Tonight we go to the Bean Supper at church.

And the best news of all? The sun is shining, finally.
