Back for a weekend tour 5

IMG_4868After church on April 2, some friends and I went to Chinatown for lunch and dessert and most importantly for conversation!

Peng had to leave early to visit a member of the church in the hospital. And we forgot to take a photo before Jim and Holly left. But we did get one with Jamie, Don, and me.

See you along the Trail.

IMG_4871On Sunday, April 2, I had the privilege to preach at First Chinese Presbyterian Church in the City of New York. It is one of the churches where I find myself at home. The people make it so.

Thanks to my dear friend Peng Leong for the photo that was taken after the service.

See you along the Trail.

SweatSean and I went to see Sweat, a new play written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Kate Whoriskey. It is a powerful story of long-time friends whose relationships fray and tear as economic change leads to layoffs and picket lines. There are strong performances; it is worth seeing, a good venture back on to Broadway (as an audience member).

See you along the Trail.

KOENIGOn Saturday, April 1, 2017, I had the privilege to lead a retreat for the candidates and inquirers for ministry of the Presbytery of New York City. Committee members also attended the retreat which was held at Broadway Presbyterian Church.

Together we explored why followers of Jesus work for justice by engaging in issues of public policy and corporate policy. We remembered that the separation of church and state does not mean the separation of our faith from the processes by which decisions that influence all of us are made.

Thanks to JC for the photo.

See you along the Trail.

Back for a weekend tour 1

IMG_4830I returned to New York for a long weekend. It involved staying with my son Sean and my grand puppy Henrik, leading a workshop for the Committee on Preparation for Ministry of the Presbytery of New York City, and preaching at First Chinese Presbyterian Church.

Henrik did not seem to understand that I was at his apartment to work rather than to play with him.

Maybe next time.

See you along the Trail.
