|a good benediction|
It was a good day. Full house in worship, the baptism of a wonderful kid named Mira, and the blessing of being with these good folks before I departed. The Deacons had a pre-service pancake breakfast, and the food was generous and delicious. Thanks to all who made the departure so special!

Meg also invited a hundred of her closest friends and fondest acquaintances. Naturally, she included some church folks in the mix. It was a grand way to celebrate her departure from high school.
Seven years ago, my first sabbatical coincided with Meg's eleventh birthday. The picture that I took at a birthday breakfast is a reminder of she has now matured into a wise young woman with deep insight and many abilities. We are very proud of all four of our kids; this week belongs to Meg.
