On the last day of our trip, we travelled home in a roundabout way. First we went to church at Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis. If you are in the area, it is a great place to visit. You can find out more about them from their website, but here are two observations of note:
1. Our family usually sticks out because we have 5 kids. At CREC, we were just about average.
2. The congregation sings exceedingly well. It is very rare to visit a church where people sing well in parts, and where the men’s voices are heard at least as well as the women’s.
After the service, we met Angie of Angie’s Humor Blog for the first time,and we also met Valerie of Kyriosity. We met with her once before, in 2000, at a Ligonier Ministires conference outside of Pittsburgh. Then we travelled through the wilds of Baltimore, led by our guide the extremely gracious Miss Valerie, and had lunch with her. She is a wonderful cook and a gracious hostess, and we hope we did not entirely eat her out of house and home.
Here is a picture of most of us, in front of her house. Anna was the photographer:
After lunch, we took the long drive from the north of Baltimore back to Erie. The weather was quite challenging, and we did not get home until almost midnight.
