Cool Weather

The cool, dry season hit us on Sunday morning. Finally!

We opened up the house, all our many windows and used the box fans. It was awesome! We probably won't close the windows until next May. Winter is finally here!

For all you people up North, this is why we live in Miami. The last 4 months have been hot as hell. The rain for this past 2 months has been very annoying, but now, finally, Miami is paradise again.

I don't start at Granada Presbyterian Church full time until January, but I've started with a few hours each week already. They bought me a new MacBook, which I'm using now.

There is a learning curve, but be sure, but I think I'm going to like the Mac platform much better.

New Job

I got a new job as an Assistant Pastor at Granada Presbyterian Church, where Katherine and I have been attending for about a year now. Actually, I will start full time work in January, but I'm doing a few hours each week at the church, officially, now.

I will no longer be a hospital chaplain in January.

This has been a long time coming, in many ways. I'm sad to leave the hospital, but very happy to be part of the Church more definatively. I think the new position will fit me better, and I will be able to deliver to the Church the gifts that God has given me for her more effectively.

More on this later, I'm sure.

Oh, by the way, I preached at the church last week, mp3 here.

Our Cruise

I don't think we're cruise people, though it was a good trip, and we certainly enjoyed it. I hope to give a fuller reflection later, but for now...I have posted the pictures here.

Majesty of the Seas

On Friday, September 13, 2007 we'll be boarding the Majesty of the Seas (seen above) bound for Cococay. We'll spend Saturday on that little private island. Then we'll wake up on Sunday morning in Nassau. That night we'll return home to Miami, Monday morning.

Our first cruise!

Split Blogs

I have just started a new blog, which I am tentitively calling, "Wandering Toward Truth, Beauty and Love."

This blog ("William Sofield") will continue as a fun, interesting, personal kind of place.
The new one will be more academic, thought-provoking, mentally stimulating.

So now, this blog will be mostly oriented to a "friends and family" crowd.
The new blog will be more oriented to a broader crowd. That's my goal, anyway.
