September is here once more, and we are ready to resume our chapter meetings. Summer was so hot and humid I thought at times it would never pass. Now, I find it hard to believe it went so fast!
Our first meeting for 2012-2013 was held at 2:00 p.m. on September 23 at our home in Kenwood
(directions enclosed). Fr. Joseph Cox, OSB, will be the Guest Speaker for this meeting. The topic of his talk was: "How Lectio Divina Helps Us in Overcoming Murmuring.” (When I mentioned to Clyde the topic of Fr. Joseph’s talk, he commented that—regardless of Lectio—he considers himself an expert at murmuring. I’m afraid Fr. Joseph is going to have a big job on his hands!)
A potluck dinner followed the meeting. We provided the main course, plates, napkins, utensils, and iced tea, coffee and soft drinks. Those who are able brought a side dish (vegetable, salad, fruit) or dessert to share. We always have plenty of food.
Two new oblates were invested in May. We welcome Mainerd Sorensen, who was invested on May 9, and Claudia Reynolds, who was invested at the Oblate Day of Recollection in Columbus on May 19. Our congratulations to you both. We are happy to have you with us.
