Our Visit to Mother Emanuel AME Church

Our abiding gratitude goes to Gordon20024 for underwriting our trip to Charleston this past weekend — thank you, Archie!

Ann and I made a flying visit to Charleston, SC this past week.  A lot of things did not go to plan — but we did get to see Gordon20024 (Archie) and The Marti for a little while on Friday.  Archie picked us up at the airport and took us to see Marti at her home (where we also met the kitties).   Unfortunately, an urgent phone call meant that he needed to turn around and go home right away.  He got us checked into a hotel before he had to go.

On Saturday, we met with the Emanuel Church’s historian, Liz Alston.  We had mailed the star quilt to her some weeks before and she asked us to present it to the minister at Sunday services.  But Saturday, she kindly offered to give us a tour of the church.  It happened to be open that morning as the sanctuary was being decorated for a wedding that would take place later that day.
