I’ve got my papers!
And, of course, a towel.
Well, it’s an e-mail, actually. And a plane ticket that, although virtual, I believe will actually grant me access to an actual air plane.
I’m going to Connecticut. Peabrook is a small town in Fairfield County, about an hour north of New York City. The church is Faithful Heart, an Open and Affirming UCC congregation. Rev Mark says they’d like their sojourner to help with their youth and children’s programs. It’s a big church, with three pastors and several full-time staff members. That’ll be a new experience for me!
I’m feeling kinda melancholy about leaving New Orleans. I mos def won’t miss the heat… Being here has been a life-altering experience. I’m not even sure I can articulate why… I’m just not that eloquent. The combination of sad and abandoned juxtaposed with the restored and hopeful left me on a continuous roller coaster of emotion my whole time here.
I always travel light, but I’m going to be even lighter this trip. I’ve met a lot of people and given away a lot of stuff that meant a lot more to them than it did to me.
Doug, Julie, and Jake will have to keep up the posts for a couple of weeks. I’m going to be busy!
