A bit more on my trip to Ohio. This was the main point of the trip there.
My mother was being officially installed as the "Association Minister of the Southwest Ohio Northern Kentucky Association of the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ". She has been at the job for almost a year now, but this was the time for the official service installing her in the position. It was a nice service with a lot of music that was definitely a match for who my mother is. And then there was the religious equivalent of a swearing in. I was glad I could be there.
