This Week

I’m home now and have posted the comments you left while I was away. Thanks for writing.

The reason for my absence was the 2007 Bishop’s School of Ministry, a four-day arrangement of speakers and seminars for the UM clergy of South Carolina. We met at the usual place (Springmaid Beach), and it was a stimulating time of continuing education and reconnecting with friends. Perhaps you are a little bit like me, in that there are some few people in your life whose soulbeat most closely approximates your own, such that when finally in their presence again, you both naturally recognize the holiness, beauty, and worthy depth of the other…and consequently of self. I was blessed to miss one of the seminars in exchange for a conversation with one of my friends like this.

If you’re ever in the Myrtle Beach area and are looking for a different sort of restaurant, try Collector’s Cafe, 7726 N. Kings Highway. It is a funky-cool, casually elegant art gallery setting with jazz music (not live), moody candles and track lighting, and an extremely creative chef working in the kitchen. The seven people in my group tried five entrees, two wines, three desserts, and everyone was very pleased with their choices. The menu is a little on the expensive side, but for the occasional occasion, it’s certainly worth it.

I also enjoyed walking to the end of the pier and feeling the ocean each night before going to bed.

  1. It is always good to see old friends who are so much like ourselves that we feel really really good, and perhaps even normal again . . . for a while at least. And, it is always nice to feel the ocean. I would have liked that restaurant, too, I am sure. Sounds like it was a good week.
