Ceres didn't fall like lightning - but she does have several nicks from lightning strikes. After sitting on top of the Missouri Capitol since 1924, the one-ton bronze statue of the Roman goddess of agriculture was lowered today the 260 feet to the ground. She will be cleaned & repaired (including from lightning) before being returned back up to her pedestal. #moleg
Clash of seasons as winter refuses to wait its turn.
Enjoyed hanging out today with Shane McNary, who serves as Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel in #Slovakia. Great conversation over lunch. And we recorded part of our discussion for an upcoming episode of the Word&Way podcast Baptist Without An Adjective. Find the show in iTunes or other podcast platforms.
I #voted. Same time as usual in mid-morning to avoid long lines. But instead of waiting for 0-4 people as usual, the line took 25 minutes. An hour later, my dad waited 45 minutes at same polling place. It's nice to see people voting. . I voted against fear & bigotry. Didn't have a caravans welcome shirt so wore this one. I pray we'll listen to our better angels.
