Going to Texas

This afternoon I am flying to Texas for a conference. The conference begins tomorrow and runs through Saturday and is sponsored by the Church Pension Group of the Episcopal Church. It's a conference on Safeguarding God's People, the adult to adult version, train the trainer. My parish serves a lot of older adults in homes and assisted living facilities. We need to be up to date on the latest issues and responses. We need our volunteers to be trained so that they can be wise and attentive. So I am going along with two other staff members. It will be a long weekend. I'm bringing my knitting....so I can sit through two days of presentation. The only thing I am hoping for - no role playing. I don't like to do that in this kind of a setting.

Also, while there I am going to my first Revgals meet up with Mary Beth. Whoo hoo! She's coming to the hotel, since I will be carless and the hotel is apparently convenient for her. I am so excited. We're having dinner together Friday night. YAY! Perhaps we'll have pictures?

I have my sermon written for Sunday, which was like pulling teeth to get it to come out of me. (SIGH)....but at least it's done enough. I'll look it over when I return Saturday night.

Well, better get ready for this day, this weekend. Blessings, all!

Have a safe and productive trip, and happy knitting. And how fun to get to meet Mary Beth.
You lucky duck! And Mary Beth too!! Gettin' a meet up.

Have a safe trip. And I hope you can enjoy your dinner, missing some teeth after that sermon writing.

I don't care for role playing either -- never did, even in my social work days. I hope you had fun, as well as some good learning. I finish my sermons on Thursday, without fail (a new practice -- maybe less than a year old?) -- and it feels really good to have them done. I do a final quick run-through on Sunday morning for grammar, etc, the occasional last-minute thought, and maybe to make notes so I can preach out of the pulpit. It's a great exercise for me.
