Wonderful visit with St Michael's, O'Fallon. The turnout was excellent in comparison with recent Sundays, energy was high, and God was worshipped in spirit and truth. Having worked with a deacon for as long as I have now, I had to awaken some habits that had grown dormant, but I seem to have remembered everything that needed to be remembered. For a congregation of its age, St Michael's has a superb physical plant, the envy of many churches, I'm sure. Then we had a quite productive meeting with the Bishop's Committee, with a lot more clarity now about the steps that need to be taken toward the end of securing permanent pastoral leadership for them.
