College road trip
Andy and I explored new territory last week.
We traveled 1,595.5 miles round trip in the Explorer Sport Trac. We covered parts of five states – Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan.
Our 17-year-old (like his dad) has always been a collector of athletic shirts and caps – no matter the team. A couple of years ago, he discovered a church-affiliated school near Detroit called Rochester College. That Christmas one of his gifts was a Rochester Warriors T-shirt.

Cell phones come in handy!
My work week starts on Wednesday, when I send out all the classified bills and start getting stuff organized for the upcoming week. Last Wednesday started off with a strange omen of things to come...
Often, when I go to the post office on the square and get the mail, I run by Fred’s Dollar Store and get a diet Pepsi and usually some snack/junk food. (Did you know postal clerk Kenny Rose is going to retire before next Christmas — after 35 years with the post office!)
The Preacher’s Corner
‘Housekeeper’ in the house of God...
The current movement toward “spirituality” in the churches emphasizes various activities such as “journaling,” “walking a labyrinth,” various prayer rituals, songs, prayers said repetitively, and so forth as ways of channeling our thoughts toward God. One of the terms you often hear is “centering prayer.”
As you may detect, I am less given to contemplation than to action. I do think about things a lot, but I have never considered my thinking as particularly “spiritual” — it is more like worry than prayer!
