This weekend we made our way up from Alabama to Virginia (about 8 hours on the road, and surprisingly few tears) where we are now staying with Jessica’s folks and getting to visit with churches and friends we have not seen for ages.

In other news, last week Seth learned that his great-grandfather, who was a Christian worker on the streets of Chicago, was known at the end of his life as “a friend to the friendless”. May God grant us the grace to carry that legacy forward.
