On Pilgrimage

Gates, Walls, and Towers

Holy Places, Holy Service

A Youth Pilgrimage to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York City

June 21st - 29th, 2008

Please pray for us pilgrims. May we find and be found by Christ!

Psalm 122

I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together.
To it the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
For there the thrones for judgement were set up,
the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
‘May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
and security within your towers.’
For the sake of my relatives and friends
I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good.

Hey! How come no one ever wants to bring the Little Darlings on a pilgrimage to Panama?

My friend says you have that "Will Riker" look He's such a Trekkie!!

Perhaps on a future trip! Sorry you are feeling neglected...

David G.,

Being an old Trekkie myself, I should thank you for the compliment! I can probably claim some similarity to Riker's serious temperment (some would describe it as "square"!) combined with a sometimes impetuous nature. But I most certainly lack his towering stature, physical strength, and I'm most definitely a far cry from being referred to by my superior officer as "Number One."

That's probably a good thing...
