How does that work? Has he put in his time and now he's exempt, or should he still be attending services?

Either way, good for him.

So, I got Lily to laugh for the first time ever this morning. Pretty much the highlight of my day.

That's a broad question.

It's a mainline protestant, specifically the denomination is Christian Church Disciples of Christ. We're a lesser known denomination but I love it. People are very open minded and we enjoy challenging each other's beliefs rather than being told what to think.

Ethically, retired ministers are not allowed to go back to the church they had just been serving because in the past ministers have meddled with the search process for a new minister, and have over stepped their bounds with new ministers, so the old ministers now have to stay out of the process completely.

I know. I LOVE to laugh, so it was pretty amazing to think that the very FIRST time she did one of my favorite things it was because of me.

I know nothing about bio or anatomy or whatever, but at the very least the pancreas releases insulin whenever we consume glucose or carbs, so they can be broken down and converted into energy.

I still like going for the community thing. I'd say if I did it purely based on my views, I'd be somewhere between agnostic and athiest, and wouldn't be going to church.

Insulin. Balances all the sugars that enter your body. I know this in great detail thanks to my brother's diabetes.

I like when your internal douche bag meter gets too high for your own liking, so you post something like this to achieve balance.

Cute, though.

Ah, that makes complete sense.

Does he miss aspects of it, or is he just relieved, the way many newly retired people are?

So you can't live without it? It sounds like the type of thing that we could manufacture a suitable replacement.
