Yesterday, i could smell smoke around here - LA smoke! On Monday and Tuesday, the haze of the huge fires in the LA almost obscured the mountains which is bizarre for us. But then this has been an usual weather year. Normally the thunderstorms are gone by the time of year and our autumn skies become incredibly luminous and clear with gorgeous sunsets.

tomorrow, I'm plunging into the heart of haze, as I'll be speaking Saturday at the young adult track for the Southern California Renewal Conference in Anaheim.

I am so grateful that the triple digit temps in LA have ended and it will have dropped into the 80's while I am there.

Fr. Mike was in town very briefly and then flew off this morning for Seattle where he will be doing another day of consultation with the staff of Blessed Sacrament Church as they wrestle with becoming a truly evangelizing parish.

We have so many events scheduled for the next two months and they keep rolling in. We can hardly keep track, much less get them all up on the website:

11 Called & Gifted workshops
5 C & G interviewer/facilitator trainings
1 Making Disciples
1 parish mission
and numerous one-of-a-kind special presentations that keep multiplying like rabbits.

Two months ago, we thought we were going to have a quiet fall. Ha! We not complaining, believe me, but thank God for our traveling teachers around the country!
