Work

A sample of pictures taken for my work. Also pictures of me at work, taken while I’m at work, and even some taken on trips while I was working.

It is going to be a long day today. I left at nine and plan to be at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church by midday. Then we have four hours to get everything ready for the four pm Celebration of Absalom Jones service. After that, break everything down and drive three hours home.

One, two, three. Testing, testing – I’m doing my first church service broadcast in almost a year tomorrow. Time to check everything still works.

New work profile picture – It’s time for a new profile picture for work — the old one was taken in 2011, ten years ago. How did that happen?

So Grammarly tells me it detected a new tone in my writing last week — ‘negative.’ Now I need to get started on ‘sarcastic’ and ‘antagonistic.’

How much IKEA furniture can you fit in a Cadillac? More than you’d think, but not everything Ginger bought. Just as well we had our car to take home what didn’t fit. Two-minute read, 6 pictures

Stained glass window in the Chapel of The Good Shepherd – This stained glass window is in the Chapel of The Good Shepherd, Christ Episcopal Church. We’ll forego the debate on the full meaning of the sacrificial lamb.

Altar and Stained Glass – This morning I had a meeting at Christ Church. When it was over I went to find pictures to accompany evening prayers. The altar was bathed in a pool of light where the cleaner had turned on the altar spotlights and left the rest of the lights off. It made for a picture I couldn’t resist. One-minute read
