Winter is Here
, July 19, 2017
Winter is here. At least, it is for the record-breaking 16 million viewers who turned in to watch the series premiere of Game of Thrones on Sunday night. By the end of the week, roughly 30 million people are expected to have watched “Dragonstone,” this week’s episode.

It’s a big election year and all the media and online chatter seems to be focused on who is best qualified to be our next leader. I won’t risk getting political here, but I am more than willing to boast that, as an Episcopalian, I am thrilled with our church’s leader – Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop. Recently, I had the good fortune to hear him speak at the National Press Club. He was there thanks to the generous invitation/work of Christ Church parishioner, Susan Hahn.

Christ Church offered Ashes to Go at the King Street Metro station again this year. It was a cold day but our hearts were warm in sharing the message of God’s forgiveness as open to all who turn and seek it. In my fourth year of offering ashes at the metro station, I observed familiar things and experienced some new reactions. As cold and early as the day typically is, offering Ashes to Go is a great blessing to me – truly I received more than I give. Every year it is a delight to see people who walk with such purpose towards our group as we offer the ashes.

Fancy food is wasted on me. So, it should not come as a surprise that I find myself drawn to particular fast food chains.
