From Spello to the Bay Area and back again

Amy and I made the flight from Rome to SFO last Wednesday night for Geoff Haskell's memorial service today in Pleasanton. We fly back to Rome tomorrow morning from SFO and will arrive Monday morning to resume our sabbatical itinerary.

As I wrote before, I didn't see this as a distraction to our sabbatical as much as a surprise on this pilgrimage that would tell us something about God. We had a full three days. Today was a great celebration of Geoff's life and a kind of reunion of friends, former students, family from the last 20 years.

I want to get to bed, but soon this week I want to write about the weekend and what we learned about God. Suffice to say, I'm glad we made the trip.

Stay tuned. (see Geoff's blog at
