After supper, we came back to my apartment for some fine scotches (Bob helped me learn about Scotch), some great conversations, story-telling, and reminiscing. I am meeting them tomorrow morning at Peet's for some coffee before the 10am St. Luke's service, and then we will sojourn there to worship together again. Bob doesn't know this (nor does he read the blog, so I'm safe in saying so), but I decided a while back that I want him to preach at my ordination** to the priesthood. I've been waiting for a good time to ask him, and now that he's here in person, it seems like said good time has arrived. It will be a sermon you'll not soon forget, if you've not heard a Bob McGee sermon before, so if you come to my ordination for nothing else, come to hear Bob preach.
Like I said, earlier, sometimes God just knows when you need a visit from a saint.
[Later: BrotherBeal has pointed out to me that I forgot to write in the asterisked footnote. So, here it is.
** - Ordination dependant upon the will of God.]
I, for one, am glad you cleared that up. I thought for a second you were on some sort of theological steroids and your ordination would be so controversial that folks would be forced to talk about it only in hushed tones. Glad to know that's not true.
