Well, I'm back from Nashville. Had a meeting-a-thon for NAUMS (National Association of United Methodist Scouters). Lots of good stuff, lots of boring stuff, mostly just way too much stuff. We did a year's business in a day and a half. I got in last night (or rather, this morning) at 1:30 a.m. I'm basically frazzled.

Worship at The Upper Room was good, though. I needed that. The message was particularly apt for me, the communion was lovely, and I enjoyed the company in my pew. Initially, I was thinking of just punting (not going). After all, I was out of town, tired, no responsibilities. A day off from church might have seemed in order. I went mostly from peer pressure and boredom (everybody else is going, and there's nothing else to do). And God met me there. Even in a perfect world, said CS Lewis, there would be a little of the natural resistance to God to be overcome -- though there, overcoming it would be a delight, not a debate.

Well, much to do, much to do.
