My husband, Bishop Leo Michael and I have been on a whirlwind Episcopal tour of our Wyoming churches with a final stop in Greeley, Colorado.

So much happened on this trip, many testimonies of God’s love, even a great writing related story, but that’s for other posts. For this post, pictures will best share our week’s adventures.

First stop: Left early in the morning from Kansas City and arrived at Casper, Wyoming in time for dinner at Bosco’s Italian Restaurant with Bishop Ken and Priscilla Kinner…

…there we met Wyoming Senator John Barrasso and his lovely wife, Bobbi. We showed them a picture we’d published of them in Koinonia, the Holy Catholic Church Anglican Rite publication.

The next day, requiem Mass for our beloved Deacon Bill Brummett at the church where he faithfully served, Church of the Holy Family in Casper.

Our Church of the Morning Star does not need stained glass windows. God provides the beauty:
