I've been a bit out of the loop for some reason the last 2 weeks. Just kinda preoccupied with stuff on the home front, and worrying about victims of Sandy, and rocket attacks in Israel, and so on.
The long-awaited meeting at my congregation arrived today, when we were supposed to outline an agenda for this year, and I hoped to get special needs children on the agenda. Didn't happen. The meeting got a huge infection of committee-itis. Lots of talk about how we really should have lots of conversations about the stuff that's important to us instead of.... having those conversations. But the food was good.
