Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

I’d tell you that New Year’s Eve is not a big holiday for me. It’s too expensive and frenzied. So I have nothing to report on 12/31.

I did go to another church from the list of the “Eleven Churches Not to Miss When You Visit  Chicago,” St. Alphonsus in the neighborhood of Lakeview in Chicago. Again I was blown away by an 19th century church. This has a sapphire ceiling and marble altar. I snapped dozens of photos, but got home and 2 out of at least 50 were kept. I don’t know what happened with my camera.

As I wanted photos with the Christmas decorations still up, I returned yesterday. For their Epiphany mass they had a full choir, horns, an organ and drums. The homily was relevant and meaningful. Afterwards, I took more photos. The ones that were still on a device were taken on my phone and iPad. All those taken with my camera (and were of higher quality) are gone. I hope it’s just a problem with the memory card.

I worked a lot for the Census and got to attend a Chamber of Commerce meeting. I was impressed with the sense of true community shown by the members towards each other and the hospitality I was shown. The best part of the job is getting to see new sides of my community.

Friday a friend and I went out to eat and then drove around Sauganash, an area where when we were kids was known for the homes with over the top holiday lights. While it wasn’t as dramatic as we remembered, there were some very festive. I was happy to see some homes commemorate Hanukkah. While Hanukkah is a smaller festival in Judaism, it’s good to see that these families wanted to share their faith with their neighbors.

*My phone’s charging so I can’t use my (poorly shot) Hanukkah lights so I’m sharing these.
