Higher Things - Day 2
I started yesterday by talking about how long our drive here was. Well, there's few groups here from South Dakota who drove 30 hours to be here! Yowzers. Impressive. I met one of the young men from that group, Morgan, who just graduated high school and is thinking about seminary in the future. Good guy.
How about a group picture?
If you don't like that one, how about this one?
Um . . . well . . . we're hoping for the best social media post of the day. I think we have a pretty good one thought up for today as well!
Overall a good day. Everyone I talked to enjoyed their breakaway sessions, and of course, all the services. Just something about singing good solid liturgy and hymns in a chapel packed with youth all singing heartily. :-)
I taught my second session already, so I am d-o-n-e! Get to kick back now. Actually was doing that before. This trip is busy, but a nice break from the usual routine and other kinds of busyness. But I digress . . .
How about the food? Not bad. Other places we've been to have been better. More limited choices here. But good conversation and fun around the table - some serious questions and discussion, too.
Last night during free time, Sarah and I played the most epic giant Jenga game of all time. It just wouldn't end. The picture below doesn't do it justice - we went many more rounds after this picture.
I finally had to lose on purpose so I could get to the talent show, to support our own . . .
Miss Fields, who sang awesomely! There were some other really good talents as well, and some not so good, too. They'll announce winners today, but she gets my vote!
Met another old friend - former vicar in the circuit, Pastor Neugebauer, from South Dakota.
And just a few more random pictures for your viewing enjoyment!
(Don't worry! No old pastors were injured in the taking of this picture.)
