Lenten Service and Luncheon


Earlier this month I joined a group of my fellow Federal Reserve retirees for a tradition we enjoyed when we still worked downtown: the St. Paul’s Episcopal Lenten services and luncheon. The theme for Lent is God’s Economy: What kind of world does God want? What are we doing about it? On the day we attended, Rev. Dr. Jim Somerville of Richmond’s First Baptist Church was preaching and took as his text the Sermon on the Mount. He’s down to earth and in his short talk gave us much to think about. The Church is lovely and my companions as always were great fun. I think they much know half of Richmond! At least it seemed so as we slowly worked out way out of the santuary and into the luncheon. Inspiring and rejuevenating.
