On Friday, I (Tom) returned from a Spiritual Formation Seminar on Early Christian Spirituality at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary by pulling into our new stone driveway. A new house, which we should by occupying by the end of the week . . . by God's grace a new home to bless family, friends, neighbors, the People of God.
A big thank-you to brothers-in-Christ from Elizabethtown Brethren-in-Christ (the specific local incarnation of our home, i.e., the People of God, into which we'll be adopted later this morning) for helping us unpack the storage unit and set-up the dining room table on Saturday.
A few minor updates on the house: first floor painting finished, dryer installed, furniture mostly in place (except for the bunk beds which need the final touches of paint). Looking forward to having conversation with you over tea sped along by our hot water tap :-)
Only have the basement, which includes my office and books desiring to be freed from the bondage of boxes, framing/drywalling, some loose ends of HVAC, the basement windows, and a variety of little things to go (e.g., install washer, replacement back screen door, replacement hall closet door). Should just take a few hours when Peter and Becky visit next weekend, but if you'd also like to help out let me know.
