Had a couple loaves of sourdough in the oven after church today. Really pleased with how they’ve turned out.🍞
The start of November has always come with a bit of self-pressure to try and do NaNoWriMo. Not this year. This year, I’m attempting the Poem-A-Day challenge from Writer’s Digest. 📝
Last session of Christianity Explored tonight. Looking forward to running it again next year.

This is the desperation coffee setup.
My Clever Dripper got dropped by someone in the house and it broke. In a fit of desperation I tried using a Melitta-style filter paper in a sieve over a metal bowl with a regular, electric kettle to brew a makeshift pour-over and it is far from the worst coffee I’ve ever had. ☕️
Another script written. I’m quite far behind on reading for my training course so I’m looking forward to having a guest preacher for the last week of October. In the meantime, I’m really excited to preach the genealogy in Genesis 5.

I’m about a third of the way through this (reading for a book club with folks who have been on the same training course as me) and really enjoying it.
