On the road again

Once again I send hurried greetings from on the road. It's the mid-point of my week with the lectionary study group I meet with every January. I've been part of this group for 13 years and it has manifested God's grace in my life in different ways at different junctures during that time. This year, I'm realizing what a gift it is, after nearly a year with brand new people in a brand new place, to spend a week with folks who have known me a long time. I hadn't realized how starved I was for that. What a blessing to have just eaten lunch with the pastor I worked with when I was 25 years old and newly ordained after 10 months of having to introduce myself to people and tell them all about myself. Or to have another friend say, "I knew what you were thinking when so and so said such and such," because she's been privy to at least some of my thoughts for more than a decade.

God is good.
