Tawonda says: "Totally NOT in the solemn and penitential spirit of Lent, I posted a very short, very lame joke on my blog, and I also did some frustrated, what's-it-all-about-Alfie kvetching about the vagaries and lack of meaningful one-on-one mentoring I'm experiencing in my lay ministry program."
Blessed days to you all...and if you'd like to share something that didn't make it in this edition, well, shout it out in the comments!
