I said goodbye to the good people of St. Andrew this past Sunday. They threw a great party on Saturday, and roasted me well. Thank you for the music, videos, stories and skits - plus a great meal. Sunday was our last worship service together, and we did it well, and in true St. Andrew fashion.
I'm off for 2 weeks of vacation with Lisa. It's unlikely I'll be posting anything to this blog until Sept 1. We'll be in Wyoming and Montana on a motorcyle camping trip. Then a weekend in Minnesota to visit her parents. This was all planned last January, but comes at a good time, as we catch our breath before the September 1 start date as Bishop.
Michael Stone has designed the formal invitation to my installation, and I hope you will consider attending. As an fyi, the Lutheran Lizards motorcycle group and I will be having a procession to my installation on the morning of Sat. Sept 29, departing Charlestown at 10 a.m. More info on that later.
