Still Recovering From Assembly

Ever since I returned from CWA in Minneapolis, I've been running nonstop. I'll be back to my regular posts next week. Here's a picture of Gary and me who led the Goodsoil Singers during CWA. We sang hymns and spiritual songs every morning from 7:00am to 8:00am as a way to greet the delegates, wrap them with grace, and remind them of our connectedness to God and to each other. It was REALLY early but was a powerful experience nonetheless. Some waved at us or gave us a big thumbs up sign. Some stood and sang with us for a verse or two. Others, sadly, looked straight ahead with a scowl on their faces. It's a shame that although we have differing opinions on matters of human sexuality that we could not always sing together with one voice. I promise to keep on singing until we can!

P.S. Gary, my husband, is on the far left.

Rev Eck,

Welcome to the world!! I read your blog all the time, and it's SO NICE to put a face with your words of wisdom. Welcome out indeed. (And yes, I've got a big ol' grin on my face too.)
Peace from Alaska,

Thanks for your support. It has been an amazing week needless to say. Coming out on my blog is only a small part of what is happening. Thank you for your support of my little corner of cyberspace. : )
