Who would have thought it?

Having a very long week at the G.A. Days drag then fly then stop. I'm ready to go home. Cheese is a fun roommate who knows everyone in the Church so I've enjoyed meeting her seminary pals, colleagues back upNorth and so on. We go back to the Grand Hotel to count police cars and see how the parking lot girls are doing. I'm not sleeping well here. It's hot then hotter.

Because I'm intuitive and care-worn by the Storm, I pick up on feelings floating around the Assembly. I feel so very sorry for those who believe that their church is now lost and I feel sorry for those who do not worry about those who feel that their church is lost. No one wins here. Our national life is mission, not rules. You heard me say it here.

What we say and do shows what we think about God. Our fractiousness is not a good witness to anyone.

It's not easy to tear this laptop out of Cheese's paws. I have it this morning because I sent her downstairs to get milk for our dreadfully strong coffee. I locked the door. If I keep the CNN news turned up high, I can finish this post without hearing her cries to be allowed back into the room.

The two of us had dinner last night at an updown diner (like the Buckhead Diner in Atlanta, Songbird) with NotShy. He is a dear and if the world made sense, he would live in my neighborhood. I loved sitting at the table with Cheese and NotShy, looking from one face to the other, and thinking about how much larger my world is because of the RGBPs.

I'll be going home tomorrow. Blessings to each of you,

My vote goes to St. Casserole!
I am so weary of church issues and yet one more group separating themselves out.
In spite and despite it all, we trust God is working in us, through us, beyond us.

We miss you.

I pray your you to rest physically until you feel renewed down to your very bones.

I'm glad you're there, and that they're there with you.

Blessings to you all, and long live the RGBP.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...I love eating with you and sharing a bit of life's joys and challenges over ice tea and sympathy.

St. Casserole for Moderator of the World.

I'm glad you were able to have some real face to face time. A real Cheesy Casserole time.

I vote for St. Casserole being the Hottest Dish of the RevGal Ring.
