I had a wonderful weekend in Richmond, VA, doing the keynote and a couple of workshops at their “Graced by God” conference. Thanks to Eileen Brown for arranging for me to speak and to Deacon Ed Schmidt who served as my “personal assistant” throughout the day. I immensely enjoyed meeting Ed and spending the day with him and enjoying lunch with him and his wife. Thanks Ed for your selfless diaconal service, not only to me, but to the People of God you serve!
I also had the pleasure of listening to the afternoon keynote speaker, Fr. Mike Renninger, pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Richmond. What an incredible job he did speaking to all of us about the theme of “You Are What You Eat” focusing on the Eucharist. Great job, Fr. Mike!
