In this case, I am definitely not surprised.  Smiley

Is this the same priest who shared his blog with us here?

Yes.  It was referenced recently (by Fr Lance, I think?) and I commented on it/him.

In which case he is just returning...or maybe he never left.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It's definitely a return.  Based on my limited personal experience, I think "never left" may not be inaccurate.  At any rate, I know him to be a good man with a good family.

I hope he can continue to be a bridge between the EOC and ACoE.
