I hope it's okay to bust into the "Ask the Matriarch" party today, but I thought I should let everyone know that we appear to have a plan in place for any Rev Gals or Pals attending this year's Festival of Homiletics event, taking place May 16-20 in Minneapolis.
We have tentatively arranged a meet-up at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Minneapolis. They have a restaurant there called the "The Great American Grill." The menu looks good and is reasonably priced. If I have a sense of numbers, I will be happy to make reservations.
So far, the plan is to meet there on Tuesday May 17th @ 5:00 pm for dinner. Worship is at Central Lutheran with Otis Moss III at 6:45. There is a concert to follow with the Peter Mayer Group being featured. This should allow for plenty of time to get to the worship and concert, as we will be right across the street from the venue. If anyone wants to arrive a bit early for dinner to allow for more meet and greet time, that will be fine too.
Further plans for Wednesday night dinner are to meet at Brit's Pub, time to be determined. We can arrange all of that at Tuesday's gathering.
It would be helpful to know who is planning to be at the Festival of Homies and who would like to join us for dinner.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.....
