Friday was Heilige Drei Koenige, Epiphany. So at home and at work I broke out the chalk and wrote 20+C+M+B+06 over the door. (At work it had to be on the door since I couldn't reach that high.) I learned about this years ago from my German homestay family. It marks the year, as well as the first initials of the three kings who visited the baby Jesus. Also, CMB are the first letters of the phrase Christ bless this house (in latin, that is).

I got to serve communion in chapel on Friday. It was such a very cool experience. There were many people there that day that I know and care about. And over and over I got to say, "this is Christ's blood, shed for you." The time was so joyful and ethereal. It was incredibly powerful.
