C.S. Lewis and community
Somewhere in one of C.S. Lewis's books, he said that Christians ought to attend the nearest church of the appropriate denomination. Well, since our goal is to live on the family's land Alabama, the closest church of the appropriate denomination is Christ Church Presbyterian, which meets just outside of Birmingham. Now, two and a half hours is a bit too far to drive, plus it's not exactly conducive to parish life, so Mike's looking for a job in the Birmingham area. I hope I'm not boring y'all with the Chronicles of the Cumbees (or maybe a better title would be "As the CumbeeClan Turns"), but for now, the two year plan is to rent, get out of debt, start saving up so we can pay cash when we build a house.

Anyone interested in working on a CREC plant in a couple of years in rural Alabama, come on down! In the mean time, here's an excellent sermon by Steve Wilkins Schlissel - Succoth: Covenant Community in Your Face.
