It's been a quiet week at Festival of Homies.* Inner Dorothy, I-4Grace, Cheesehead and I had a late supper last night at a swinging restaurant.

We got back late to the Good Hotel. By this morning, everyone flew home except me.

Homies provides great worship and powerful preachers. You should go next year.
The preaching blew me away. Worship was a mixed bag because some of us are thrilled by laptops on the Communion Table and others are not. I wish you could hear 1600 preachers singing hymns or see Lilly Lewin as she read the St. Patrick's Breastplate prayer.

I think of Merrily Watkins in the Phil Rickman books when I hear St. Pat's prayer because Merrily says it as she prepares to enter a scary place.

I'll be home with my people tonight. I am homesick. I miss my people.

Thinking of you,

St. Casserole

*Not really quiet. I made that up.

Oh, it sounds wonderful...And Lily there too. Hope you're home safe now, my friend - and maybe, just maybe, I'll get there too next year.

Laptops on the Communion table? Hmmm.

LAPTOPS! On the Table?

Holy freaken smoke! (which, we call that incense...)

Sue said...

Yup, laptops. And a table lamp.

Huh.

St. C -- what a tremendous week it has been. I am tired, but it's a good kind of tired. It was just so great to meet you and Cheese and all the other RevGals and Pals. Really. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.

Laptops on the Communion Table. I could see it only if a hammer came out next and smashed it to bits, followed by "this is my body, broken for you."

Glad you had a good trip. Green with envy you got to meet some of the Pals.

Hi StC.
Hope you are home by now. I am whipped and still got a sermon to do. I think I will meditate on it for this evening.
So, good to see you, finally! Have a good week.
Peace,

For the "cool" worship service we saw:
on the Communion Table, in the Baptist church, three Mac Books, one lamp and other stuff.

Rather than making me feel that I was in sacred and unfamiliar space, I kept thinking about the IMacs. Is a Mac book the laptop of choice for Jesus?

Really.
