I‚Äôm sitting here in the airport in Phoenix, waiting to catch the red-eye to Chicago. From Chicago, I have an early morning flight that will bring me to Ottawa and the North American Cathedral Dean‚Äôs conference. It‚Äôs my first time to attend the yearly meeting of the ‚Äúmystical fellowship of deans‚Äù and I‚Äôve been looking forward to it since I learned I was invited.
Sadly, I‚Äôm traveling alone. One of the things that got lost in the move was my wife‚Äôs passport. And since Homeland Security is now requiring passports for all air travel outside of the US, the line to get a new one for her was too long for her to make this trip with me. (Hopefully next year thought, right K?)
I‚Äôm not sure how much internet access I‚Äôll have up north. I won‚Äôt be able to use my phone to check mail or surf the web if the meetings get boring, so I‚Äôll have to limit myself to getting online during the evening hours at the hotel.
There‚Äôs a new national blog for Episcopalians about to be announced – tomorrow or the day after – if all the tech details fall into place. Keep an eye out for it. It‚Äôs something I‚Äôve been working with folks on now for a long while, and I‚Äôm quite excited that it‚Äôs about to launch.
In the meantime, I‚Äôll keep my ears open for any interesting tidbits that I might here during the conference. I‚Äôm especially interested to hear from our Canadian colleagues, now that they‚Äôve had a visit from the ABC and all.
