Thanks to all of you who helped with dinner Sat night. Great food, lots of potatoes, and real Irish corned beef. It was a great St. Patrick’s Day. Let me encourage you to think about the four terms which reflect the ethos of the early Irish church and, I hope, will reflect what the Wheatland…Details
