It’s been an absolutely crazy time on many levels since my last blog posting. I have officially “retired”, although I’m teaching more courses than ever at several universities, traveling to speak with groups of priests, of deacons and their wives, and directing retreats. We have moved back to our home in Florida, saying farewell to family, friends and co-workers in California, and saying “we’re back!” to old friends and co-workers down here. In ministry I have left a wonderful, extraordinary parish and returned to another where I served before heading out to California.
And, of course, since my last blog post, Donald John Trump has transitioned from being President-elect to being President of the United States.
I’ll be returning to active blogging shortly.
