It's official: I now have dual standing in the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
I spent yesterday morning being "examined" by the Church & Ministry Committee. They "approved" me after asking me questions mostly about UCC polity, some of which I really flubbed, but the committee passed me anyway! Thank goodness!
I spent the afternoon at church as well, participating in our church's Planning Retreat which lasted from 1:00 until about 5:00.
Then I was off to friend Life Giving One's house to pick up little Julia for an overnight at our house--a sleep-over which included my granddaughter M as well. J is 3 and M is 2. For the most part, they managed to have a great time together. I think it helped to have them both here at the same time. For one thing, little M fell asleep without a fuss, having J in the bed next to hers. Whew!
They are such delights to have around!
