The town end of Conneaut Lake has an unusually large number of ducks, geese, coots, etc. this year. They stretch from one side of the lake almost to the other. It's quite a sight. Yes, it was a gloomy day.
St. John's has gorgeous windows - a full set of Louis Comfort Tiffany's. They are stunning. I didn't take any photos of them today. You can see some of them by scrolling down here or searching for them. When you are in western Pennsylvania, it is worth considerable effort to see them. Call the church and make an appointment.
Meanwhile the liturgy was sung this morning. The priest sings well as did the soloist. Everything needed was in the very large bulletin - actually an 8 1/2 X 11 booklet. Good for visitors. The kneelers are the most comfortable I have ever encountered. Several people invited me to coffee hour and a few actually talked to me. That's how to make someone feel welcome.
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.
