From Country Preacher to Movie Star


Day 32

Thursday, May 7, 2015

I am once again jumping track.  Today, we had guests during our noonday prayers, Sext.  A  camera crew was filming the monks and guests chanting the Psalms.  I rather doubt that I am in the film but for the sake of entertainment, lets just say I may be a movie star for a day.

As the film crew was walking through the dinning area, I asked them about their project.  Turns out they are from the Food Network and they were touring the south making a film about Southern Cusine.  The project will include Gethsemani Farms.  What I did not know until just now is that Jamie and Bobby Deen (Paula Deen’s sons) are the film makers and they were here at the Abbey along with their entourage.

I have another claim to fame.  While in New York City, Sallie, Liz and I dined at Felydia’s on East 58th Street.  Pictured above, at our table, is Chef Lydia (between Sallie and Liz) from PBS.   The Deens’ and Chef Lydia, not bad for a Countty Preacher!

I count it all joy,

Pastor Vallerie
