Running for the bus
This was our last walkabout meeting tonight. St. John's did a good job of keeping us warm in a building without a boiler. They fed us well and made us welcome. Remarkably, all of the nominees managed to have as much energy tonight as they did Monday night. This after a day of driving in rain and/or snow and visits to two churches other than St. John's. We had coffee this morning at St. Barnabas, Jefferson City - a Lutheran/Episcopal worshiping community. They have done a masterful job of renovating an old house into a real house church, pews and all. Then we travelled to St. James in Greeneville for lunch and a stirring rendition of Drop Kick Me Jesus, Through the Goalposts of Life. What fun!
And now, once again, we are ready to turn out the lights and go to bed. Tomorrow, we will be on the road once again and driving all the way back to Chattanooga with stops to be made between here and there. Keep those prayers coming just a little longer!
