Welcome to the very first post at the First Church blog. It’s nothing fancy. Jane and I are still figuring out how to use this thing! We thank you in advance for your patience. Hopefully we’ll get things looking spiffier soon.
I’ve just returned from a few days up north. I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Naniboujou lodge. As we drove up route 61, I watched the little reception bars on my cell phone get lower and lower… until they finally disappeared altogether and the phone went into permanent “searching” mode. How appropriate, I thought. That’s what my time away was–slowing down, turning away from the routine, and putting out my “feelers.” I breathed in the fresh air and turned off the computer and starting to look around in a new way.
(I won’t lie, though–I’m not totally displeased to be back in civilization, typing away on my laptop and pecking on my iPhone…)
May your summer begin well.
