Jan meditates on two versions of March Madness. BrickWall offers some great options for celebrating St. Paddy's Day. Katherine shares some writing from her 13-year-old self with us (what a concept! could you all bear it if I tried something similar? or would the Internet explode from the sheer drama and self-pity?

So come this summer, I will be priest-in-charge for the congregations of
Yellowstone Episcopal Ministries-- a regional ministry of churches just
outside Billings, Montana. Four small mission churches, each with different
gifts and challenges, working together for the Gospel. Yes, there is an
assisting priest, thank God-- and one who seems both focused and flexible.
We're going to get along well, I think. We're moving to Montana!!
