Just back from the preacher’s retreat. Was great! Saw some whom I’ve met before, like Stephen B., and made some new friends as well. Classes, discussions, devotionals, all was really great, thanks to the organization by Justin Odom and his congregation, as well as Ron T., who, through a quirk of agenda, missed the event.

Am in Tenn., my son Joel’s wife Tansy is seven-months pregnant, in hospital with kidney stones. At my son’s house, going soon to hospital, while trying to catch up on four days’ worth of emails and messages and other sundry backlogs.
