Been away from the keyboard these past few days.
Last week I was one of the clergy assigned to the first week of our church camp in Shadeland, PA. Then, on Saturday I went down to Atlanta (my former, and first, parish) to join them on Sunday for the celebration of their church Slava, Sts. Peter and Paul. I returned yesterday afternoon.
This afternoon I received a 20-part email with a bunch of camp pics. I guess I should note here that the photos are courtesy of Lana Balach, who comments here occasionally. She was one of the volunteer moms that week. One of her favorite things about camp is when Fr. Rodney is there she can attend his early morning Hours and Matins service which he serves at 5am when at home but he bumps it up to 6am while at camp. The photo above, in fact, was taken one early morning on the way to church.
