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.

Church Evenings...

...and afternoons. Seems like every day this past week had a church-related activity. Thus, no time to blog about whatever I was actually doing or thinking.

Saturday: Chuck Girard concert at our local coffee house. Chuck is a pioneer in contemporary Christian music, most famous for "Sometimes Alleluia." My fave "back in the day" was "Don't Shoot the Wounded." (He publishes lyrics and chords on the website--how cool is that!?!) I hadn't known that he had sung lead on a song that shows up on oldies radio: Little Honda by the Hondells.

Sunday: Mass, of course. Then to the hospital with Izzy to take Holy Communion to a parishioner & her husband. What an amazing honor and privilege!

Monday: Young Adult group, after a lecture by Paul Farmer on health & social justice work in Haiti and Rwanda. Take home quote: "No one should have to die from an infectious disease simply because he is poor." It's that simple and that hard. After young adults, a friend came over for fish & conversation.

Tuesday: Typing the Bulletin--emails to solicit missing info.

Wednesday: Great dinner here at the House of Chez Casa with Gashwin & Matt B (friends from church) and Bill (friend of friend who has become 1st order friend.) Izzy outdid himself with a densely flavored, yet light pasta--it's no wonder we seldom go out for Italian. Pics of India, scads of literary puns, great conversation. Afterward, usual Wednesday completing of Bulletin.

Thursday: Mass music rehearsal. Always a highlight 8-)

Friday: Farewell celebration for G as he heads for his novitiate with the Paulists. BBQ dinner (mac & cheese was good) with scads of people and lots of remembrances (roasts AND toasts) of G. Your truly composed a chant in honor (is that the right word??) of G's love of chant. Also got nice feedback on recent music done @ mass from parishioners @ the party. Home to update the Parish website with the current Bulletin.

Today: Planning to do little. Finally reading friend's blogs. Might get the rest of the laundry put away...
