Sunday

We again went to St. Vincent’s for mass. It was shorter this time because there were no baptisms. The homily was very good. The father spoke of being advance people for Christ (like John the Baptist).
After church Steve and I ran home. It was about ten miles, most of which was through beautiful parts of Fairmount Park.

In the afternoon I went to the Philly Art Museum. I finished seeing the exhibits. It was nice to be there on my own. It allowed me to spend time with the pieces I wanted to spend time with.

In the early evening I went to Circle of hope. I really enjoyed the service. It was an artistic composition of songs and words from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that spoke with meaning to the problems in today’s world. It was good to see some people who used to be part of my church in Waynesboro.

Later in the evening Josh, the Metrauxs, and I played Karaoke, a game Maricela got for the PlayStation. It was a fun time of laughing at each other. It was a little frustrating for me because I didn’t know most of the songs on the game.

Mass and Museum

This morning I got up at 6:15 to run with my host. EARLY!! We ran about six miles. He filled me in on the history of the things we ran past. After the run we ate breakfast and read the Philly Tribune and the New York Times.

We went to mass at St. Vincent’s. It was a predominantly white church. Our host family goes there both because it is fairly liberal and because it has a good kids program. Because of there was a baptism of four infants the service lasted two hours. The service was not that different. We sang several songs I know. The most differnt thing we did was ask several Saints of the past to pray for us.

This afternoon we went to the art museum with Melissa and Cheri (who live near us). In two hours we only made it through half of the second floor and a quarter of the first. I felt tired the whole time which was frustrating. We saw Marcus and Larry and found out that they live near us. We ran into Mikaya, Daniel, Sarah, and some others.
