Yesterday was the first day of class for Education for Ministry (EFM). It’s a four-year program designed to help Christian lay people prepare to be active participants in the whole ministry of the church. The curriculum comes from the Sewanee School of Theology of The University of the South, but is taught in small, local groups.
Year one, which covers Old Testament, requires the most study time. Yesterday, when I got home with my books, I told DH “This could seriously cut in to my knitting time!” Knitting will continue for my sanity, but finished objects will be displayed less frequently. I considered shutting down the blog — for about 3 seconds. It was clear I would miss y’all too much.
Time to share some pictures! Last weekend, around noon, I looked out the keeping room windows and saw the tall ships in port. The Canadian geese were in procession down our lake. A tradesman that comes to our house told us he believes they live on a lake a few miles from ours. I counted, and again saw 13 geese, the same number I saw in the Spring, so I believe he is correct. Evidently, it was just a “road trip” for the geese; I haven’t seen them since their Saturday visit.
Here’s to a lovely weekend for you, filled with lots of knitting and no frogs.
