In the TV show Gunsmoke, Matt Dillon always told the bad guys to "get out of Dodge". I worked in reverse today and flew into Dodge. I flew in a ten seat plane from Denver to Dodge City, landed at an airport the size of a house, drove past the largest meat processing plant in the mid-west and spotted names like Earp, and Holiday. I ate supper right next to Boot Hill and Front Street just as it appeared in Gunsmoke. Before you get jealous of my travel destination and wonder why I'm skipping school for such an extravagant vacation I'd like to tell you why I'm here.
It will be my great pleasure to present an all day teachers in-service to the Catholic School Teachers in the Diocese of Dodge City. I'm so excited about spending the day with a big room full of people who share the same passion I do. I'd like to ask your prayers for the teachers who will fill the seats and for me. I'll be back Thursday with more joyful words but for now...I'm going to enjoy Dodge.
Blessings on your day!
