During my third year of seminary I was taking a class called "Crisis Ministry".  At the end of the semester we had to create a crisis response for our future churches in a natural disaster.  My friend Sarah was getting ready to head back to her home state of Florida, so naturally she created a response to a hurricane.  Knowing that I eventually wanted to end up back in New England - and professing the fact that "New England never gets hit by hurricanes" - I created a disaster response to a big blizzard.

Notice the only state on the East Coast that is not getting hit by this hurricane.

I'm not laughing.

I'm too busy trying to decide if and when we should cancel meetings and weekend Youth Group activities.

Sarah, can I have a copy of your hurricane disaster response?

I put together a simple pasta salad for a potluck dinner that I went to tonight.  It needed something in the line of spices or flavoring (suggestions?) but half of it was fresh from the garden!

The dinner was with this year's Confirmation class!  It is such great a group of kids and I had so much fun with them and their moms tonight (I think we scared off the dads, haha).  We were able to hang out on the deck and enjoy the evening (it might be the last time we get to do that before Irene makes her grand entrance!).


On a more serious note - because of my sweet husbands affinity to outdoor and fishing blogs, I've gotten to know several of the bloggers.  Bruce told me tonight that Alan of Small Stream Reflections had a mild stroke.  Hop over there and wish him well if you get a chance!
