Rainy Days and Mondays

So I must be driving back to Nashville. Of the 9 weeks I’ve been commuting I’ve driven in two snows, about a half-dozen showers or thunderstorms and have had to divert off the interstate for a bridge implosion and an accident.

So at around 6, I threw in disc 3 of the Johnny Cash Unearthed Boxed set and started off. Today’s story was on Extreme Home Makeover on ABC. If you saw last night’s show (we rarely miss it) the design team chose a pastor’s family in Oklahoma. They had been living in a pastorium (the house the preacher lives in, furnished by the church) but when he died suddenly of a heart attack they had no where to go.

Anyway, some folks at Lifeway in Nashville helped with the makeover. We tried to do the story on Friday but ABC wouldn’t return our calls and give permission for the folks at Lifeway to talk. The story was pretty interesting. I’ve had the feeling watching this show that there is a dynamic of faith or spirituality going on each week. The person at Lifeway confirmed it, saying the producer told him that she’d seen some “strange things happening this week.”

The story was supposed to run at 5 but a tornado warning meant it would air some other time. I don’t know when or when it’ll make the website.

I’m working on a story on Purim tomorrow and will take the rest of the week off. The family’s driving up tomorrow night and we’ll vacation in our new town and look for houses.

    Okay, clearly, I don’t quite understand your job. I’ve been reading your blog for several weeks now and I know that you are a religion reporter for WKRN, but why the frequent trips back to the Memphis area and cities even farther (further?) south? Is this more of a regional assignment than
    mostly BNA based?

    it wasn’t supposed to be this way. Our house was supposed to sell quickly and the family was supposed to already be with me in Nashville.
    As it is though, the house is still on the market, the kids are still in their school and I’m renting a house in Nashville with a couple other guys.

    I drive back to Southaven every Friday and commute back to Nashville on Monday mornings.

    Soon (fingers crossed) we’ll relocate.
