Yesterday, we completed our Transitional Ministry training week at Montreat Conference Center.  It was a good time in the mountains of western North Carolina.  (Next year, we’ll have another week to do.)

Yesterday was also the feast of St. Aidan.  He was a Celtic luminary in the early seventh century.  He organized the monastery on the island of Lindisfarne, just off the coast of northern England.  He followed a missionary who said that the English were a lost cause.  They could not grasp the good news of Christ!

Today, my wife and I look forward to greeting another Aidan.  Sometimes we think our Shetland Sheepdog is a lost cause, but inevitably, he brings us good news.
