Slow Poster

My mother-in-law and Unity fan, Margaret Nelson pointed out recently that I seem to have taken something of a hiatus from posting! My apologies. Things have been crazy.

Take this weekend, for instance: On Saturday morning I and the family went to the very fun and extremely well attended Pancake Breakfast at the Memorial School for the Natick Organic Farm. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Then it was off to a meeting of local UU congregations to discuss discussing issues worth discussing. Finally, after dinner, my wife Allison and I attended the Eliot Church Auction. This was a rip-roaring success!

Sunday began at church with worship reasonably well attended by the previous night's party-goers. After service was the first meeting of our 2005 Confirmation Class. I enjoyed hanging out with the kids. I think they may have enjoyed learning about the church as well. We went to the Natick Historical Society Museum across the street from our church building and the kids were given a tour by Anne Schaller and Mary Ellen Ames, two long-time members of the church. Anne also has a book about Natick that can be ordered on the Historical Society web page.

All told, it has been a busy and exciting time! However, there has been little time for Unity. I will do my best to change that in the near future. This week,please watch for the posting of Sunday's sermon, where I take the pulpit back from Chris Walton and Bob Batchelder who filled in the past couple weeks. Reviews are still excellent on their work. Thank you, guys!

Finally, Chris Walton, as some of you know, had his weblog featured on The Daily Show. You can link to it below or type "". Note that second "i"... Congrats Chris!
