Campaign Trail: Day 7
I had a dinner meeting yesterday with Fr. Tharp and a third priest. We accomplished much campaign planning. However, our meeting went longer than expected, and by the time my campaign convoy got through traffic we had missed the first session of Clergy Days. Luckily, most of the priests had adjourned to an upstairs reception area, so when the three of us entered the conference center lobby, it wasn't as if all eyes were on us, coating us with disdain. I hope that the priests understand what campaign time is like. You try to have a schedule, but things inevitably get off track at times. I just hope missing that first session will not be interpreted as aloofness or lack of intellectual curiosity on my part.
