On Tuesdays we meet as a team (pastors and Denise and me) to check in, do a spiritual practice, pray, work through an agenda, and eat lunch together. I love team meeting so didn’t necessarily long for a change, but today’s field trip to Tilikum was especially nice because the sun added lovely warmth to my reading spot inside and to my walking spot outside. I snapped this picture of two others enjoying the rays.
I can’t visit Tilikum without remembering the Anderson photo shoot,
John and Erin’s wedding in 2004, and even my pre-Macy days.
I can only imagine all the memories that return to team member Steve, who grew up at Tilikum—his dad once the director, his mom once the cook. My 17-year history seems shallow by comparison. I’m okay with that.
