First Sunday after the Epiphany
It was not an overly-demanding Sunday--just a 30-mile jaunt to Trinity, Jacksonville for a humane service time of 10am. Preached, celebrated the Eucharist, and presided over the Renewal of Baptismal Vows on this feast of the Baptism of the Lord. There's a good spirit at Trinity under the leadership of their still newish rector, Fr Zachary Brooks. Home for a long nap and a classic movie (Hitchcock's 1955 To Catch a Thief).
