Good Grief!

I happened to take a look at the web log today, and found to my great surprise that I hadn't posted anything since last Thursday. I guess I've been involved.

And indeed it's been a busy few days. Thursday night was my writer's group night; we meet about once a month. Then on Friday I went over to a buddy's house for the evening; this is an exceedingly rare event these days, and accounts for why I didn't post anything on Friday.

Saturday morning saw the beginning of the Out of Africa Mission. Archbishop-elect Henry Orombi of the Anglican Church of Uganda and his team have come here for a week long mission to ten of the churches here in my home town. I'd met Bishop Orombi before, as he's visited our church in the past; consequently, I not only got to hear him speak Saturday morning, but also at church yesterday morning. This was a Great and Good thing.

Saturday afternoon and evening I don't have any really good excuse for not posting, except that I was working on Notebook. By the time I was done I was pretty well braindead, and so probably wouldn't have written anything worth reading.

And then yesterday was remarkably busy. There was church in the morning, of course. Jane had a meeting early in the afternoon, so I had to get lunch for the kids and keep an eye on them; after that, David had a friend over to play. And then Jane and I got to go out to dinner and to a meeting of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Anglican Council. Not a terribly romantic destination, I admit, but change is coming to the Episcopal Church, and this was our chance to get a heads up--plus we got to hear Bishop Henry yet again. I'll probably have more to say about this in the coming weeks.

So, really, I've just been busy. That state of affairs will likely continue this week as the mission proceeds (there are events Tuesday and Wednesday nights) but I'll try to keep posting anyway.
