We had a great Synod meeting last week. “Synod” is our annual denominational business meeting- this year in Mitchell, SD, home of the Corn Palace. It was good to see the brothers. I’m spending this week or so by myself; my wife is traveling to visit family. The upside is I get to explore all sorts of new food combinations, like sardines in scrambled eggs (yum!). The downsides are rather more substantial. Miss you, family.
