We had a warm and energizing visit with the people of St Thomas', Salem. On a good day there are about 40 people in church there, and today was a good day. They were grateful to hear my announcement that I am consenting to their retired Vicar, Fr Tom Davis, serving as their Sunday supply priest on an indefinite basis, with the understanding that both he and they will respect his retired status in various clear and concrete ways. I promised to hold both parties accountable.
Home just past 3pm, having noticed that gasoline prices about about thirty cents lower in Marion County than they are here in Sangamon County. Hmmm.
