Two mornings of fog. Yesterday, Easter, the fog was over the water and beach as we began our sunrise service at Fleet’s Cove Beach. Today, Easter Monday, the fog is in my brain as I slowly recover from a huge day.
We had a wonderful Easter at CCH. The weather forecast had called for a 40% chance of rain and overcast skies. So I was surprised when I got up at 5:00 AM and could see stars in the sky. The beach, though, was completely socked in with fog. At 6 AM when we began the service you couldn’t see more than 50 yards. As the sun came up it quickly burned off the fog revealing a glorious morning.
Then at 10 AM we had a big crowd with wonderful music. Athletes speak of “leaving it all on the field” when they play a big game. Easter, for us clergy, is the day to leave it all in the pulpit. I was happy with my sermon and it helped a lot to have good quotes from Gregory Boyle’s book, “Tattoos on the Heart.” to illustrate my message to see the face of God in all people.
We had Anna and Rich, daughter and son-in-law, for brunch and then a delicious feast at Ronnie’s sister Julie’s place with her husband Danny’s family. Quite a day.
Don’t count on much from me for a few days.
