I'm about 30 minutes north of Rochester right on Lake Ontario....
Grace and Peace,
*grin* technically you're 30 minutes EAST of Rochester as Rochester is also on Lake Ontario......but that's okay.
MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation
Ach... you caught me! I'm so used to living in SW Michigan (where the lake is always WEST and up the shore is always NORTH).... I just can't seem to get the fact that the lake is north of me to sink in!
Grace and Peace,
You must have been transferred. I thought you were in Mich. I grew up spending my summers along Lake Ontario. One place was Olcott Beach and the other was Hamlin. My brother-in-law was a Methodist minister there. I lived every summer with them, your note brought back memories.
Yep, we moved in April/May. The Reformed Church's system is a strange bag of interviewing and deciding to move - it's been a good move though. We're now at Pultneyville Reformed Church in Pultneyville (Williamson), NY. So far it seems like a beautiful community with wonderful people.
Grace and peace,
I hope the idea catches on. You're convenient to Syracuse and Rochester and not all that far from Buffalo - should be able to pull in a decent number of people.
Albany's not far either. But that depends on construction on the Thruway!
Welcome to New York. I'm so glad you like it so far!
Sounds interesting, though a little far for me. Did you design that shirt you're wearing, or you bought it somewhere?
I wish I could take credit for it. It's by JiNX! - I got mine at:
This retreat sounds interesting, a cozy, comfortable and chance for contemplative creativity,l and I may very well consider it. However, right now I am waiting to hear about the possibility of going to Europe for a sabbatical in February which would have a definite impact on my winter schedule. So, allow me please to hold this retreat on my "just in case" file and please continue to keep us informed of your plans.
My wife used to live in Rochester so a visit is in the works for her and a place for me to go would be nice too.
