I headed out of town for a few days for a personal retreat. I went to the Cliffs of the Neuse State Park. I camped. I gave me some time to read and pray, think and exercise. I read half a dozen books and quite a few Psalms. I used a couple of “Book of Hours” as prayer guides. I hiked a few of the trails and explored different areas of the park. It was a good few days.

I’ll be teaching a couple of classes at OVU’s lectureship next week. This was a good opportunity to think about what I’ll be saying. I still have more to do to get ready, but I’m looking forward to the time in WV.
