A Day of Rest

Sundays are meant to be a day of rest. They weren't very restful for much of my adult life, but when we moved to Colorado, Sundays changed dramatically for us. Our church here didn't have Sunday evening services so our Sunday afternoons became slow and restful....and wonderful! The last three days have literally been non-stop for me, and I've been looking forward to this afternoon ALL WEEK! I didn't manage a nap, but I did get to read the Sunday edition of the Denver Post (one of my favorite things!) and we've been watching the Super Bowl too. I snuck downstairs after half-time to post this quick note here!

Yesterday I went to a Discovery Class at our church. It was an all day event that explained much of the Anglican history and theology because most of the folks that worship with us don't have an Anglican background. It was actually very interesting, and I'm glad I got to be a part of it yesterday. I hope one day this week to post more about yesterday, and about our church and why we love it. I know that a lot of our friends in the South think we've joined a cult or something because Anglican isn't a word you hear very often. Rest assured we haven't...and I'll give you the scoop when I have more time and get my thoughts together! Honestly though, I want to get back upstairs and watch the Super Bowl. I'm cheering for the Steelers. We know several folks here who are from Pittsburgh, and even though they beat the Broncos, we'd love to see them GO STEELERS!!!

Hey Mer... I think it is perfectly wonderful that you and your family have found a church where you feel "at home." Hope they will give John more opportunities to preach. Can't yet picture him in a collar.
