Church At Long Last

April 9, 2007: Easter Monday

Well I am hooked up with a church again. I went to Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil at my local parish. I had visited there some while back and found it felt unwelcoming. there has been a complete change and turn around. All new clergy, including an Interim. And someone I knew in the Diocese of Newark, though I think he doesn’t much remember me.

I guess I should feel ecstatic to have made the connection, but actually I have been feeling a bit let down. Inevitable with so much hanging on this. I am not out to many people as a priest. What’s the point so far. What I should do is write to the Bishop of NC with a copy to the local Bishop, making myself available somehow.

Nevertheless, it does feel good to be back in the church again, so right. And this is a church I can actually walk to, a 45 minute walk. I did it last Friday and Saturday, and got a ride home with the priest I knew in New Jersey. On Sundays I have a ride to and from.
