A strange trip to Massachusetts
— I would not have chosen to travel to the East Coast last week in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. I suppose it was a stark reminder that we don’t generally get to choose the time and place of our final departure. The time was chosen for my father-in-law. It was in the middle of the afternoon on Good Friday, a time at which my wife Kathryn and I would normally have been in church if public liturgy hadn’t been suspended.
