Goodbyes, Vacation and an Invitation

I said goodbye to the good people of St. Andrew this past Sunday.  They threw a great party on Saturday, and roasted me well.  Thank you for the music, videos, stories and skits - plus a great meal.  Sunday was our last worship service together, and we did it well, and in true St. Andrew fashion.

I'm off for 2 weeks of vacation with Lisa.  It's unlikely I'll be posting anything to this blog until Sept 1.  We'll be in Wyoming and Montana on a motorcyle camping trip.  Then a weekend in Minnesota to visit her parents.  This was all planned last January, but comes at a good time, as we catch our breath before the September 1 start date as Bishop.

Michael Stone has designed the formal invitation to my installation, and I hope you will consider attending.  As an fyi, the Lutheran Lizards motorcycle group and I will be having a procession to my installation on the morning of Sat. Sept 29, departing Charlestown at 10 a.m.  More info on that later.
