Happy Saturday! It’s been quite a week. Today wasn’t so bad, but earlier in the week was a bit rough. I had to make a decision to stop accepting books for reviews. It’s not one I made lightly; it’s been a while in coming. It was using too many spoons, which I need for family stuff and to put more effort into actually writing.
Speaking of which, this week’s snippet follows directly from last week’s. Chris, the minister at one of the local churches, has come to see Micah—who is confused in part because he’s not at all religious himself, though his late spouse was. Here, Chris explains why.
“We can go to my classroom,” Micah suggested.
They wound their way back to the sixth grade wing of the elementary school to Micah’s room. Inside, he offered Chris a seat at a long table then sat across from him.
“Now. What can I do for you?” Micah asked.
“I’m one of the lead volunteers on the community center’s continuing education program. I got a call from another leader that you might be interested in helping us out.”
