I read Renita Weems in seminary. I have started reading her blog, which is very good. Here is the latest entry.
Meanwhile, I got home yesterday afternoon and the very first thing we noted is that our new satellite dish receiver, installed 3 days prior to our trip, no longer works. Oh well. We have Netflix and other things--like books! Plus I have an entire month's worth of mail to scour. We are assured another one will be sent soon. I am going to an inaugural party on Tuesday so that is not a concern.
And another thing. Please pray for a retired priest of our parish; his foot had to be amputated this past week. This is not the first foot amputation in our church lately. As our rector said, "...foot amputations are not contagious!"
