    John 10: 11-18; 04262015; 4 Easter   I shared with the vestry this past Thursday evening that I’ve entered into my second round of stardom in the Diocese.  I was asked by Mike Ehmer if I would mind his showing the video of Corby teaching me how to speak Texan.  I’m always good with more publicity, […]
