My high school graduating class was the last to get all the way through primary and secondary education without any influence from the federal government via the Department of Education.
What do bishops and cardinals talk about when they are not being bishops and cardinals? I occasionally have a mental image of a few bishops around a kitchen table in some episcopal rectory somewhere, playing Monopoly; a couple of cardinals in a hotel room after some sort of synodal session, arguing over who is going to go fill the ice bucket and yelling at the tv over a game of football.
My yard looks naked without any endorsement signs. I am forcing myself to wait to publish a congratulatory post until the election results here are certified. It's very difficult, but I could always use more patience.
I am very thankful that I only have one more Tuesday night of Reader's Class (I got another 'that was beautiful' at last night's class). Being a Church Reader is a lot more than 'pick up the book and do the reading.'
You meet the nicest people in the unlikeliest places sometimes.
