(from Sara Sybesma Tolsma)
Today I am packing for my flight to Chicago to attend General Synod. I’m also making sure the garden is taken care of, the laundry is done, that there is plenty of food and milk in the refrigerator for my family while I’m gone. I’m writing lists of reminders – take the van in for an oil change, Daniel drives for driver’s education class on Thursday, recycling goes out on Thursday, etc. I’m not very good at leaving my family and I imagine that is true for many other delegates who are involved in similar activities today and tomorrow. So today, as you read this blog, I invite you to offer a prayer.
