So what do you do come Wednesday?

I just got back from a few days away at Shrine Mont for the Bishop’s Spring Conference. Twice a year, the Diocese of Virginia hosts conferences for those who work in churches – the fall one is for clergy only, while the spring conference is open to clergy, lay professionals, and spouses and partners. It is always a rich gathering characterized by beautiful worship with great singing, hearty fellowship and opportunities to connect or reconnect, downtime for hiking, napping, reading, and contemplation, and breathing in the special air of Orkney Springs. Each year there is a program, something to feed our minds and hearts as well, plus a chance to hear what is on the hearts of our bishops.
