Note: I’m doing more exploring of my Catholic faith, and will be writing from time to time at Hot Air on Sundays about my journey. Some readers challenged me to fill the gap left in this regard by Tina Korbe’s departure (and she did a great job at it), but I’m also looking for more of an outlet in that area, too.

In the meantime, I’ve been corresponding with Patheos’ Deacon Greg Kandra, who’s been a big help as well as just being a good friend in these matters. After my first experience as a Eucharistic minister (officially, an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion) yesterday, Greg asked me for “a few stray paragraphs” on my experience, and this is what resulted.
