Our vacation began not with a bang...

but a quimper. Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship , that is. Our first full non-traveling day began with Sunday services at what I think of as "The church my mother in law built", though I do admit that she had help. I found out why she thinks so highly of Rev. Bruce Bode- he thinks clearly and speaks well. (So far I can report 100% good experiences with UU ministers named Bruce)

Rev. Bodes' sermon, "Religious Liberalism and Political Liberalism" was tremendous, and will be the subject of a post here as soon as it's transcribed on their website. (I try not to quote from memory, preferring more reliable sources) I will say that I think it's the first time I've ever heard it said from the pulpit that its possible to come to conservative conclusions from UU principles.

There's another UU congregation out here, whose minister all of you know and love. Ginger and I will be having lunch with her in a couple days.

This is my 300th post!

Looking forward to Thursday, Joel! I'll catch the boat at Keystone at 12:00 noon and be over there about 12:30. Does that work?
