A couple of my favorite Chicago buildings as seen from Wabash and Congress.
One of Eliot’s favorite books – given to him by my parents – is The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge, the story about the lighthouse that sits on the edge of Manhattan under the George Washington Bridge. We made our pilgrimage not long after arriving in New York last week. Maggie had thought to bring the book with us on our walk to the lighthouse and Eliot couldn’t wait to read the book once again, this time within sight of a new favorite place.
During our Thanksgiving trip to visit Maggie’s family in Tennessee we made the drive into Memphis to introduce Eliot to my favorite ribs, expertly prepared at the legendary Rendezvous. He made his daddy proud.
Doug designed another beautiful banner for our church, this one for Advent which begins next Sunday, November 27. We’ve put together some Advent readings and prayers on our website that are worth checking out. I also made the case for entering intentionally into this season in our latest church newsletter.
