Just a quick post to let you all know how things went. We arrived in Spokane on Thursday. Friday I met with the bishop and the other ordinand to talk about the service, pray, and stuff in general. Mrs. Ref practiced the carrillon since she was going to play one or two selections immediately before and after the service.

Got back to the place we were staying and the cathedral office called saying the the regular carrilloner (sp?) left for a family emergency and would Mrs. Ref play during the entire weekend. Ummm . . . no. She was terrified of "flying solo," so to speak, but she did a great job.

The service went well and Paul and I got diaconated.

Best part of the service: Having my daughter read the NT lesson (more on that later).

Best ordination gift: A can of Miller beer, a package of Camel cigarettes and some Calgon (for when things get tough).

Favorite memory: Having a post-ordination reception at the home of a fellow Whitworth student and seeing family and friends.

Much much more to tell, but I'm beat, need to finish laundry so we can pack for the trip back to Chicago.

More later
