On Retreat

The other day Dwayne mentioned that he has a paid holiday tomorrow for Columbus Day …. hmmm, I’m liking this new company more and more.  I looked at my calendar, and it was clear — totally clear — of appointments or meetings or anything for Monday. 

So, after I worship with the Nigerian Presbyterians this morning and early afternoon, we’re going on retreat to High Island.  Our presbytery owns a small retreat center there that’s hardly ever used.  I thought we could check it out.  Just a building, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and meeting hall … no phones … we may even be out of cellphone coverage … no TV … no internet … just us, the birds (it’s an area used by birders), the beach not far away, and God.
