The Anchoress Has The Conn

Many CQ readers know that the First Mate and I volunteer our time at Twin Cities Marriage Encounter, both as the president couple of the board and as weekend facilitators. This weekend, we will help stage an Engaged Encounter for affianced couples looking for a head start on communication skills. We've not done a weekend in over a year due to our health problems, but we felt that the shorter EE weekend format would work well for us.

That means that I will not be blogging again until Sunday, although I may unleash a prepared essay on Saturday just to keep things lively. However, I want to make sure that the CQ community doesn't miss a beat, so I have invited one of my favorite bloggers to take over the ship in my absence. The Anchoress excels at long-form political essays, analysis, and Catholic theology. Most CQ readers probably already know her blog, but if you don't, you'll get a chance to see how talented she truly is. She'll be posting all weekend, and we may overlap a bit on Sunday.

One final note about TCME: we have been told by our landlord that we will have to leave our facility next spring, after over 30 years at the ME Center. This isn't as bad as it sounds, as the fixed cost associated with the facility had been an ever-increasing burden on our solvency. The transition will be difficult, though, and any donations CQ readers feel inspired to make will be much appreciated and properly used. TCME is a registered non-profit, and all donations are tax-deductable. The PayPal link is below.

Thank you, and be sure to make The Anchoress feel welcome!
