One Church, indivisible: Aimee's blog from Crete

Once every five years or so, a group of about 120 men and women, pastors, laypersons, academics, and church leaders get together to talk about the issues that still divide the churches. It's called the Faith and Order Plenary Commission, and its next meeting will take place at the Orthodox Academy of Crete, Greece, 7-13 October 2009.oac

This year, I've been invited to go. 

And I'm writing a blog.

Centipede!

Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2009

So I’m sitting in the Athens airport, waiting for a flight to Munich and then Chicago, trying to catch up on this blog, and I look down and a three-inch centipede is crawling up my leg. (Yes, I jumped about a mile. Almost threw my laptop across the room.)

I ask myself, did I bring this guy with me on the last flight from Crete? If so, he’s evaded detection through some pretty serious security. Should we be concerned about the lack of insect awareness in international air travel?
