A whirl of gaiety

We've been quite busy around here.

Wednesday night Fr. Adrian from St. Herman's Monastery in Platina, CA came to our church to deliver a lecture on the Georgian Saints. It was quite fascinating. I had grown up knowing about St. Nina and also by extension Queen Nana and King Mirian but the history of Georgian Orthodoxy goes far beyond them.

Thursday night St. Innocent's Academy from Kodiak, Alaska came through on their trip throughout the U.S. We gave them dinner and they sang for us. Then the students and young adults from the church danced. It was a lot of fun and I didn't get home until very late. I saw a few old friends which was lovely.

My family also picked strawberries and made two batches of strawberry jam, in addition to organizing the meal for the Academy. So we've been on the move!
