The Lord's Day (XVII Pentecost)
Up and out of our Bloomington hotel at 7am, ahead of a 7:30 Eucharist. Presided and preached, then talked with parishioners about mission and vision concerns during coffee hour. Did it all over again at 10, only with two baptisms and six confirmations thrown into the mix. Spirited plenary discussion of the church’s engagement with culture during coffee hour. Pulled out of the St Matt’s parking lot around 12:45 and headed north to Chicago for some time with the progeny tonight and tomorrow.
