My Christmas tree has a star thanks to Sharecropper. This is the extent of my Christmas decorating. The tree was given to me many years ago by a treasured friend who worried that I never decorate. I try to remember to find it and take it out of its tube every year. This year was easier as I never put it away after last Christmas.
There was a healing service at St Clement's last evening. They are held regularly somewhere in the area. The woman I sat with knew the people who travel to them. There were two teams, one of them rather, um, heavily clerical. Had I had the courage to go for a blessing I would have chosen the other one. It was interesting anyhow. And quite formal. I didn't photograph the actual blessings for the sake of those who were being helped. A reception followed. I need to remember to not eat pizza at 9 pm.
This is the drama every morning when Jellico is here. Tim had a bit of respite when he disappeared for a couple of days. He returned last night. I wish I could have caught the hiss but I missed it. Meanwhile the others watch from their perches. PuddyTat and Dude aren't visible but they were in their usual spots.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
