Oh, don't you wish you could knit the world back together?
I'm so sad for the community at Virginia Tech. And I'm also sad for my own undergrad's personal tragedy that came to a head yesterday, when someone found the body of a student who'd been missing since last September. So much sadness in our world this week.
But I also have a great deal of hope today. Tomorrow I travel home to spend a weekend with my parents, doing some wedding planning and some secret knitting. More important than all that, though, is a super-important meeting on Sunday afternoon: a meeting that decides the fate of my career in ministry, I suppose, as my Association decides whether or not to approve me to apply for jobs. If you're the praying type, please send up a good word for me. If you're not, then please cross your fingers. And either way, knit me some good Spirit and eloquent speech on Sunday afternoon.
