What a loving parish family. Laying on of hands is a truly spiritual experience. The love of individuals is evident as is the feeling of God's presence in the moment. Becky's sermon today helped me solidify my intentions for this 14 weeks. I will enjoy playing the organ when I am in town, but will not be at the 7:30 service, nor the 10:45 after June 23. As much as this time is meant for Becky's rest, i too will look forward to entering into a different rhythm of "being" and not always "doing". blessings... read more

New York, NY (May 15, 2019). Ah the splendor of jet travel! My visa arrived with 36 hours to spare ... I am leaving on a 15 hour flight at 3 AM. At least I should be able to sleep! Flying Hainan Flight 7916 from JFK Terminal 4 on a non-stop hop-over to Chengdu. There I'll have a day to recover while the rest of the team catches up...traveling from from San Francisco a day later. Looking forward to reconnecting with the good people on the team and those at Sichuan Provincial People's Hospital. Excited that we'll be seeing some new areas of Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces.... read more

So this will be our last post for this trip. It has been an awesome trip and feels like we have been gone forever......this is day 25 away from home!! We are at JFK awaiting our flight to PIT at 9:30 We land there at 11:00 and then head for WV. No matter hw much I love to travel, my favorite part is coming home. While it may sound trite "There's no place like home!!" This post will be a wrap up of the trip.....the things we loved, hated, laughed at, & found challenging. So, as Shealyn says, lets start at the very beginning....a very fine pace to start(obviously we watched The Sound of Music on the flight home). First of all we liked that we exchanged some money before we arrived. It helped us with ... read more

It was a bright sun New Year's Eve afternoon a little more than 32 years ago when we began our greatest journey. We found ourselves nervously sitting amongst one of the most unique collections of people we had ever experienced. The mixture of languages, skin colors and the obvious financial differentials of this diverse cast of characters meant it could only be one city in the world. Nowhere else on earth could have offered this mixture of cultures, shapes and varieties of the human experience. It had to be in New York City. We and about 100 other couples were here in the Manhattan marriage license bureau for the second day in a row. The previous day we had stood in line and paid our ten dollars to receive our license. Today would be the day ... read more

We had finally made our plane reservations to return to Tunisia and get back onboard Tsamaya. Now we had the deadline of April 15th to have everything done that we wanted to (now how did we think that would ever be possible?) or at least to prioritize what “had to get done” before leaving. One thing for sure was to make a trip out to our old stomping grounds to see friends. We had hoped to do it earlier but something always came up. We pulled a trip together quickly even if it was a shorter trip than we would have liked. We squeezed in as many people as we could see into the short time we were out in the Trumansburg area and we apologize to those that we didn’t make contact with this time. ... read more
