• Labor Day Weekend I visited Big Bear for the first time ever—late Friday evening through late Tuesday afternoon!!! Monday we experienced a 90 minute cruise around Big Bear Lake on Miss Liberty, but none of my pictures were good enough to blog.

• All month I've enjoyed working on Monday Food Distribution. Powered by grants, donations, by nearby farms, and by human hands and feet, it's particularly important as COVID continues in this low income community with a high proportion of immigrants.

• After a year and a half long break due to COVID, Conference Assemblies are back. I've at least partly moved from Los Angeles Metro to Twin Valleys; Sunday evening at All Saints Sun Valley included a mandated business meeting plus a festive Eucharist to celebrate the formal start of the cooperative Twin Valleys (Santa Clarita and San Fernando) Parish that allows small churches to do more together than they could by themselves. Historically, Conference Assembly always included a good meal. This time we had delicious boxed sandwich, salad, savory bread stick, and dessert from a local restaurant whose name I'd love to have. Guests could dine inside or outside but stayed in their own affinity pods. These are the two best pictures from my phone.…for some reason, the couple dozen excellent views I got on my camera weren't on the SD card. Next time, maybe?

• I've long loved food ministries, and mostly have done kitchen to table to consumer, so I'm excited to get in on the growing experience from the ground up. Justice is important. Food is essential.

Living Local 2021

• COVID intensified Living Local, yet there's no reason to quit. Ever.
