First things first

May 25, 2010

Welcome to the very first post at the First Church blog.  It’s nothing fancy.  Jane and I are still figuring out how to use this thing!  We thank you in advance for your patience. Hopefully we’ll get things looking spiffier soon.

I’ve just returned from a few days up north.  I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Naniboujou lodge.  As we drove up route 61, I watched the little reception bars on my cell phone get lower and lower… until they finally disappeared altogether and the phone went into permanent “searching” mode.  How appropriate, I thought.  That’s what my time away was–slowing down, turning away from the routine, and putting out my “feelers.”  I breathed in the fresh air and turned off the computer and starting to look around in a new way.

(I won’t lie, though–I’m not totally displeased to be back in civilization, typing away on my laptop and pecking on my iPhone…)

May your summer begin well.

Peace,
Abby
