Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Papal Infallibility

Got a request to look at Papal Infallibility on the Young Adult Group. My response:

Great idea. Until we get a chance to discuss it as a group, you can look at some websites with good info on what the church teaches on Papal Infallibility. I picked some ones known to be reliable,(i.e., they present what the church actually teaches, not what random folks THINK she teaches...)

Report on Return from NOLA

Since we planned the trip, Cindy AND Dennis appeared. Note sent to friend upon our return:

We went to a Saturday Mass in New Orleans, and left early Sunday (7/10) to try and stay ahead of the outer wind bands from Dennis. We hit rain before we got out of Louisiana (headed north, not back across the gulf like we usually go) and drove in the rain all the way to North Augusta. The worst wind and rain were outer Birmingham to east of Atlanta--the car was streaked with evidence of wind-driven dirty water that hit at high speeds. I'm not sure I want to drive across the top of a hurricane again.

The trip itself was wonderful, if too short. We spent lots of time watching the all-panic, all-the-time channels as the Mayor and Parish Councils (sounds odd to say that) discussed whether or not to evacuate. In the end, we left and those that stayed had great weather.

When the talk wasn't of hurricanes, we talked about books & faith & the future; we sang sand read; we strolled to restaurants and bookstores; we played in the pool with the kids who, as most children do, found Uncle Izzy to be a great climbing toy. His cannonball dives are also pretty impressive!

Cannot wait to get to go back. For once, we actually went to NOLA and didn't even bother with the Quarter. We've become the "untourists."

Heading to NOLA

We'll be headed out of town to New Orleans next Thursday, for a soiree'/shindig/fait dodo celebrating a friend's successful defense (just this week) of his PhD dissertation. This friend & his wife are the parents of our goddaughter, so we're really excited for the chance to see them and celebrate. We'll return late Sunday evening.

This is, of course, all contingent on storms arising and/or dissipating...
